3 Spanish Traditional Ballads/Romances Viejos Españoles
Editor: Stanley Appelbaum
256 pages, 5 1/4 x 8 1/2, paperback, Dover Publications
Similar to England's Arthurian legends and old Norse sagas, Spanish romances were written and published before the end of the sixteenth century. This collection of 53 romances focuses on Spanish history, national legends, and Moorish themes; ballads of Charlemagne and his peers, tales derived from French chansons de geste (epics of chivalry and other courtly narratives); and miscellaneous ballads based on Greco-Roman subjects. A dual-language anthology, with excellent new literal translations on pages facing the Spanish original, the volume provides students and scholars--for perhaps the first time in English--much previously unavailable material, and will be invaluable for classroom use and home study. Dover Original. Introduction, new English translation, and notes by Stanley Appelbaum.

4 Pinnick Kinnick Hill: An American Story
G. W. González
246 pages, hardback, West Virginia University Press
Nearly a century ago, hundreds of families journeyed from Spain to the United States, to search for a better life in the growing zinc-industry towns of Harrison County, West Virginia. As they created a new culture and a new home in this strange land, they added another thread to the rich fabric of our nation.
Writing from his perspective as a first-generation son of this immigrant community, González recounts his childhood memories of his neighborhood, where these immigrants raised their families, worked in the often insufferable conditions of the zinc factories, and celebrated "romerias" and feast days with their neighbors.
Gavin W. "Bill" González was born in 1909 in Anmoore, West Virginia, the son of immigrants from Asturias, Spain. The Gonzálezes and their neighbors built a lively community centered around a place called Pinnick Kinnick Hill. Though Gavin González eventually moved away from his childhood home, he never forgot West Virginia, often taking his children and grandchildren on pilgrimages to Pinnick Kinnick Hill. Only after his death in 1988 did the family discover that he had written a memoir recounting the stories of his youth.
The book is partly a memoir, partly a history, and partly a novel, all combined in a sometimes heartwarming and sometimes bittersweet celebration of how one small Spanish community survived and then prospered in the ethnic caldron that was America.
Published in side-by-side English and Spanish, Pinnick Kinnick Hill: An American Story is a story of struggle and disappointment, but ultimately one of resilience, cooperation, and one man's discovery of America.
