This is an illuminating account of travel in post civil war Spain, circa 1949, a vanished world to us today. Best when describing the people, the characters met by the author and his wife, some of the more discursive passages are less interesting (to this reader, at least). The extreme poverty in some of Spain's out of the way villages is movingly portrayed and the author's passionate love of the country is clearly apparent. This is the Spain of Hemingway that had it's last glimmers in the 1960's, light years from the modern, fully integrated European state we see today. ( )
