A Stranger in Spain free pdf A handsome re-issue of a travel classic. With his trademark wit and inquisitive eye, H. V. Morton travels through a Spain unspoilt by tourism, revealing a country where the past is very much alive. Interspersed with episodes from Spain's rich history, "A Stranger in Spain" is a journey of discovery that should appeal to those with a sense of adventure. Morton's classic travel book on Spain is a delightful travel guide and a striking introduction to Spanish history and culture. "The stranger who wishes to approach Spain with sympathy and appreciation," H. V. Morton wrote, "must do so through its history." Thus, as he takes us on a leisurely tour through a country where the past is very much alive, he reveals a rich tapestry of events, related with his inimitable humor, charm, and sincerity. The Spain of the Christian kings and the caliphs of Cordoba, of Philip II, and the tragic Hapsburgs, the Spain of Columbus, of St Teresa, of Cortes and Pizarro, Velazquez, and Goya, is the thread on which his narrative is strung. Vivid, varied, and enchanting, "A Stranger in Spain" reflects the pleasures and surprises of travel at its best, and will be enjoyed by all who know the country or intend to visit it, or simply prefer to travel at home.
