Book Giveaway: Tales from a Spanish Village by Richard A. Barrett

Tales From a Spanish Village


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. For more information, please visit www.richardabarrett.com.

  10. Sounds very interesting. I read one that was similarly themed about a young man's stay in China and this sounds just as good.
