This is an auction for JAMES MICHENER'S IBERIA. reviews:

"Spain is a land that James A. Michener, the Pulitzer Prize–winning author, came to love as his own. IBERIA is Michener’s tribute to his cherished second home. In the fresh and vivid prose that is his trademark, he not only reveals the celebrated history of bullfighters and warrior kings, painters and processions, cathedrals and olive orchards, he also shares the intimate, often hidden country he came to know. Wild, contradictory, passionately beautiful, this is Spain as experienced by a master writer."

"FIVE STARS!!! This is not like most Michener books, which are generally fictional; these are his personal impressions of many travels in Spain. It was published in the late 1960s, and much has changed in Spain since that time, of course. Michener discusses Spain's history, culture, art, literature, dance, geography, sports, and spirituality, and weaves it all together to paint an entrancing picture of the Spanish soul. Unlike many authors, Michener uses photos carefully to illustrate aspects of Spanish culture, from the eyes of the Guardia Civil to the warm smiles of the poorest people. He also takes time to explain words that are difficult to translate and what they tell us about Spanish culture. This book is recommended with equal enthusiasm, whether from the viewpoint of history, religion, culture, or art. It is also of special value to those living in Spanish-speaking countries or regions with large Hispanic populations."
