Description - The Town of Obanos/La Villa de Obanos by A S Contin

English Version I am the author of this book of memories. I left my country (Euskal Herria, the Basque country), when I was fourteen years old. Now, near the 80's, I considered opportune to give a testimony of my native town, and of honest, beautiful people, full with generosity, that I had the privilege of knowing in that time, and that they have been a lighthouse that has guided me during the whole rest of my life. What this has of interesting is that the experiences that I had in that distant time, the lessons and the examples that I had the privilege of receiving, and the fact that at the present time I don't believe that still it exists something similar in any part of the planet. I don't want to die without before leaving behind my homage and my gratefulness to those who gave their trust to the child that I was, and that, in a certain way, I have continued being, thanks to all of them. I am an old man who refuses to surrender before the ailments of the body that are the product of the advanced age. In the same way that the old automobiles spend too much time with the mechanics, our old bodies have to spend a good part of their last days with the doctors. However, I still have something to make and it is to write books. I hope that you will enjoy this work Spanish Version Soy el autor de este libro de recuerdos. Me fui de mi pais (Euskal Herria, el Pais Vasco), a los catorce anos de edad. Ahora, cerca de los 80, me ha parecido oportuno dar un testimonio de mi pueblo natal y de la gente honesta, hermosa y llena de generosidad que tuve el privilegio de conocer en aquel entonces y que han sido un faro que me ha guiado durante todo el resto de mi vida. Lo que tiene de interesante es que las experiencias que tuve en esa lejana epoca, las lecciones y los ejemplos que tuve el privilegio de recibir y el hecho de que en la actualidad no creo que exista todavia algo semejante en ninguna parte del planeta. No deseo morirme, sin antes dejar mi homenaje y mi agradecimiento a quienes me honraron confiando en el nino que era y que, en cierto modo, he seguido siendo, gracias a todos ellos. Entre otras cosas, aprendi de ellos algo que escasea mucho en la actualidad en todo el mundo. Me refiero al amor a la humanidad, a pesar de todos sus defectos y los malos instintos de algunos. He presenciado en mi vida una gran cantidad de masacres, salvajadas y actos inhumanos que hubieran podido hacer que odiara a todos mis congeneres. Sin embargo, el ejemplo recibido en mi ninez de todos esos seres admirables ha hecho que, por el contrario, ame a todos mis hermanos, los seres humanos de todas las etnias y las convicciones. Soy un viejo que se niega a rendirse ante los achaques del cuerpo, que son el producto de la edad avanzada. Del mismo modo que los automoviles viejos tienen que pasarse demasiado tiempo en el mecanico. Nuestros cuerpos ancianos tienen que pasarse buena parte de sus ultimos dias en los medicos. Sin embargo, todavia tengo algo que hacer y es escribir libros. Espero que disfruten esta obra. Publisher's website: http: //sbprabooks.com/ASContin/"
