My last blogivesary giveaway is for a copy of Tales from a Spanish Village by Richard A. Barrett. I'm about halfway through this book and am really enjoying it. You'll have to wait until I finish it for my full review, but I wanted to offer it as a giveaway before the month is through. Here are some details:
About the book:
In Tales from a Spanish Village, Barrett’s remarkable, true-life adventure begins when he receives a grant from his professor to finish research on his doctoral dissertation in Benabarre, Spain. The memoir details Barrett’s adjustments to student life in a small, peasant town and chronicles his encounters with various characters and customs. It also details a first-hand look at Spain ruled by the Franco dictatorship, when he witnessed those considered to be lower class treated harshly by the police.
About the author:
Dr. Richard Barrett taught cultural anthropology at Temple University and the University of New Mexico before retiring. He is the author of two books about anthropology, Benabarre: The Modernization of a Spanish Village, and Culture and Conduct: An Excursion in Anthropology. Dr. Barrett enjoys woodworking, fly fishing for trout and collecting twentieth century art. He lives with his wife, Dottie, in Santa Fe, N.M., and Carpinteria, Calif.
