Sweet Promised Land, by Robert Laxalt.
Foreword by Ann Ronald; 50th Anniversary Edition.
Robert Laxalt's first book, published in 1957, tells of his father's travels to his native Basque country in the French Pyrenees.
Told with compelling sensitivity, this story portrays a family whose members share a strength of character drawn from their peasant ancestors and yet remain separated by diverse cultures on different continents.
