Description - Eugenio's New Neighbours by Margaret Gimson

In 1969, Robert and Margaret Gimson bought a neglected farm in rural Galicia, where he made a garden of considerable horticultural interest. In spite of the well-known pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Galicia is a relatively unknown corner of Spain, generally regarded as a wild, wet and windy place. The life of the people, outside a few towns, was then almost as it must have been in all rural Europe in past centuries. This is an account of their experiences, their growing understanding of the people and their culture, and their observation of the changes taking place as the region gradually moved into the modern world.
