The singular remarkable fact about the Basques is that they still exist, best selling author Mark Kurlansky says. The Basque people truly believe they should live in their own private country. This book includes their entire history, from their political and war involvement, to culinary taste, to economic and social life.

Inhabiting the small corner where France meets Spain, the Basque speak their own language, Euskera. Evidence of their culture showed up as early as 218 BC, and now, with a population of 2.4 million, their influence on our world has been all-pervasive. Listeners will be enthralled as Kurlansky delves into the roots of an intriguing population, and shows us why they continue. Download and start listening now!

    " This book was so interesting. I had no idea the Basque were behind so much of history and economics. There are many Basque that live here in Idaho and so I was interested in learning more about them. This was just the right book for that! Was written in an interesting way and left me very impressed with this people. "
