Riassunto: "A Travel Guide to Basque America" is a guide to America's little-known but thriving Basque-American communities. Join author Nancy Zubiri, a Basque-American, as she takes you out on a coast-to-coast celebration of rich cultural traditions, incredible food and generous hospitality. Your journey begins with a discussion of Old World Basques and their homeland. Zubiri then explains why and where Basques immigrated in the US. Few people are aware that the first Basque settlement in America was established in Los Angeles shortly after the 1849 Gold Rush. Basque-run boardinghouses and restaurants were the social and cultural centres for early immigrants. Today's restaurants, clubs and handball courts are still the primary community centres. If you've never eaten at a Basque restaurant, she asserts, you're missing out on some of the most sumptuous and hearty cuisine around. Generally served family-style, these feasts include such dishes as fragrant oxtail stew, piping hot chorizos and a custard-like flan. Zubiri includes information about Basque cultural activities - exciting folk festivals traditional costumes, thrilling athletic events, beautiful music and many annual celebrations and gatherings. "A Travel Guide to Basque America" should provide adventurous travellers with an introduction to vacation sites and events still largely unknown to the general tourist but eminently worth experiencing.
