"The time is the 1930s and the setting is a western frontier town of a few thousand people, with one dubious distinction. Carson City, Nevada, is the smallest capital in the United States."
"In a Hundred Graves is wonderfully expressive of the style of the Basques: strong in their emotional restraint, powerful in feelings, wry, iconic, stoical in their humor, and always permeated by an intense response to their ancient homeland."
Sweet Promised Land a true story, luminous and tender of an American by choice and the journey of discovery he made to his native Basque village.
