Two middle-aged ladies, one Penelope Chetwode, the other her 12-year old mare La Marquesa, explored the high sierra north of Granada in 1961. Together the travelers brought out the best in their Spanish hosts and Chetwode's compelling account - warm, witty, and candid - is informed by her infectious personal fascination for horses, religion, and Spain. "[An] engaging little travel memoir... A lovely portrait of a colorful corner of the country and, more important, a vivid account of a type of intrepid travel experience that sadly no longer exists on the well-traversed European continent."-Booklist

From Booklist:

As part of its ongoing mission to revive great travel books, Eland Press is republishing this engaging little travel memoir, initially released in 1964. As 51-year-old Penelope Chetwode, an appropriately eccentric member of Britain’s colonial horsey set, and La Marquesa, a 12-year-old mare and the other middle-aged lady referred to in the title, set off on an independent riding tour of Andalusia in 1962, there is little doubt that wonder and adventure are lurking both on and off the unbeaten paths of southern Spain. What emerges is a lovely portrait of a colorful corner of the country and, more important, a vivid account of a type of intrepid travel experience that sadly no longer exists on the well-traversed European continent. Travel enthusiasts will definitely want to ride along. --Margaret Flanagan
