Description

In this guide, a resident of Spain delves into every part of the Basque Country of Spain. He tells of the history and culture, and provides innumerable useful traveling tips. Everything is explored - the cities, the parks, the islands, the mountains, the foods. There is an extensive introduction to the whole of Spain, the history and culture, the foods and wines, the arts and architecture. Then all the practical details are covered. Next, we zero in on Bilbao, San Sebastian and other parts of this fascinating Basque region - with a population speaking a language far more ancient than any other in Europe. Euskara, a language unrelated to Castilian Spanish, is fundamental to the Basque way of life. Like the Basque people themselves, this tongue derived from unknown origins. It remains to be proven whether the language of Euskara arrived with nomadic tribes from the Caucasus Mountains in Africa and, for that matter, whether or not the Basque people are truly descendants of Europe's earliest inhabitants, Cro-Magnon man. The Pais Vasco (Euskadi) is the easternmost autonomous region of what is known as Green Spain, a verdant swath of land along the northern Atlantic coast that, some say, resembles Switzerland more than it does Spain. Though there are plenty of opportunities for hiking in the empty inlands of the Pais Vasco, coastal sports like surfing and boating are the main activities, along with the unique Basque game of pelota and, of course, the adventures of eating. The Pais Vasco, with more gourmet restaurants and Michelin stars to its credit than any other Spanish region, is truly a culinary delight.

Misleading title

I bought this book because it was titled Basque Country but there was hardly anything about the Basque country. If I wanted to read a book about Spain this would have been good but I wanted info on the Basque country..very disappointing.

Very little information about Basque Country

Very little information about Basque Country
Very disappointing, dull narrative. Waste of time. The title should be Spain Tourist Phone Book.

Deceptive Tiitle

Not a bad book but most of it was Spain in general. Only the last few chapters were about the Basque Country.
This book would probably be better in print as there are many things that you're going to need to use the information provided. there are lots of restaurant reviews with addresses and phone numbers as well as directions to places with Highway numbers that you'll only remember if you have an incredible memory. It's probable that many of the restaurants aren't even in business or their ratings have changed as the book was published in 2012.

Little info on Basque Country

This book was not what I as looking for. It as more of an overview of Spain with a little Basque Country detail toward the end.
