History • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1999

The origin of the Basque people and their language remains a mystery. However, we do know they predated all other European settlements and managed to retain their land, cultural identity, and language throughout recorded history, often playing an important part in world events. For instance, Magellan died in the Philippines, and it was one of his crewmen, a Basque sea captain, who was the first person to sail around the world. George Guidall, reining in his dramatic flair for fiction narration, uses phrasing and an absolute ease with Basque, Spanish, and French words to help the listener understand a sometimes overwhelming amount of material. The last tape contains an interview with the author, which is well worth hearing. P.G. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
