At the age of 19 the author left his English village to walk to London. and then onwards to the Spain of the Civil War. From Vigo to the Mediterranean, sleeping in fields, olive groves and the courtyards of inns, and playing his fiddle in streets and cafes, he saw a country still in the grip of mediaevalism, and a people who were at first an exotic spectacle for his pleasure but who became as real as himself.
