Spain

Author(s): Jan Morris

Travel Writing

"Spain" is one of the absolutes. Nothing is more compelling than the drama, at once dark and dazzling, of that theatre over the hills - the vast splendour of the Spanish landscape, the intensity of Spain's pride and misery, the adventurous glory of a history that set its seal upon half the world ...Passionate, evocative and beautifully written, "Spain" is a companion to the country: its people, its history - and its character. First published in 1964 and no less compelling today, Jan Morris' classic work is back in print, bringing Spain, its glory and its tragedy, vividly to life.
