About the Book

L. Sidney Camp is a professor of Medieval Spanish Literature at a midwestern college, and he is returning to Spain for the first time since his only previous visit as a freshman in 1960. He has not kept up with the news about Spain (or anywhere else), concentrating on his pet subject, medieval Spanish literature. But now he decides to return to Spain. After all, he speaks Spanish – although it is of the medieval type, like someone speaking Shakespearean English today. As a result of a series of serendipitous happenings while in Spain, people confuse his name, L. Sid Camp, with that of el Cid Campeador, medieval hero of Spain, and believe he is the great Cid reincarnated. With his newfound friend Pancho Zinsano, Sid seemingly performs miracles – and saves Spain!

About the Author

Hugh Hosch has had a love affair with Spain since his first visit in 1958. He worked there as a young man and has continually visited and traveled there ever since, on his own and as part of his work in the group travel business. He is the U.S. Delegate for the Club Taurino of London and regularly attends taurine ferias in Spain. This is his sixth book. He has written hundreds of magazine and newspaper articles on Spain and other subjects, as well. Drawings purportedly done by main character L. Sid Camp were actually done by the author.
