This is the ideal introduction to the Basque Culture, painting broad brush strokes a panoramic picture of the land which spreads below Mount Orhi, with just enaough detail to provide a vision of Basque people, their customs, beliefs and way of life.

The title Orhipean, expresses the sense of "beaneath the Orhi" and here we have a view of the land which lies at the foot of the highest mountain in the Basque Country.

The subtitle captures the Basque' own name for their land : Euskal Herria, wich does indeed mean "the country of Basque", the cradle of the Basque language, where Euskara was created and, resisting outside influences and savage attempts to eradicate it, has staunchly stood the test of time.

Immediatly attractive in its presentation and lay out, it is beautiffuly illustrated with the author's own painting and and choice of photographs wich catch the eye and fire the imagination, adding colour and life to the picture Xamar is telling with words.

I am convinced taht the English version of this book is perfect for tourist, students and armchair travellers who stumble upon the Basque Country and want to learn more about this fascinating corner of the world.

This is a book to keep, a book to give, a book to dip into, to savour and to come back to time and time again.
