Item Summary

No. of item(s):
Total amount:

An intense story of Ernest Hemingway’s return to Spain in 1936, in search of his lover Maria. A militant Basque woman, with child, who departed Paris, to re-join her people in Spain.

Hemingway’s intense search for one who chose to help oppressed people and lead a faction of the “International Brigade” against the Franco fascists, rather than sit and watch.

“Road to Madrid” addresses the basic moral principle of human kindness and compassion for those who proactively resist undemocratic dictators. Indeed, “for whom doth the Bell toll?...It tolls for thee.”

Gary Ross Watkins, a Viet Nam veteran (B.A. Sociology/Psychology, San Diego State, B.A. Education, U of Manitoba, M.A. Sociology U of Man.) from Winnipeg, Manitoba left home at 18 to join the US military. Through education and yearning to understand human behaviour, he tried to find his way “home” again. Today as a

retired teacher he spends his time traveling the countryside, with his dog, meeting folks from the heartland, who give him a sense of worthiness and purpose to this great human struggle.
