book description

Washington Irving is known to most americans as the author of Rip Van Winkle and Sleepy Hollow -but he was also a hispanophile and historian, and wrote this account of the 'reconquista' - the series of events and military campaigns that led to the expulsion of the moors after 700 years on the Iberian peninsula.
Despite his obvious love of all things Spanish, the account is quite balanced even showing sympathy for the Moors. Despite being written over 150 years ago Irving's prose is lively and engaging.
This particular edition is a reprint small press and pretty good quality.
