A Tale of the Basque Pyrenees This delightful Basque folktale pits a quick-witted young heroine, Nekane, [ne-KAH-nay] against a mysterious and most unusual villain, the lamina. Believed to be the first Basque folktale storybook published in the U.S., cultural details are delicately woven through entertaining and educational text and exquisite watercolors to enthrall children and adults alike. Frank Araujo re-creates a classic Basque story he heard during his childhood. The theme is immediately familiar, but the Basque interpretation is unique. Nekane, a young Basque girl of the Pyrenees Mountains, must carry a basket of fish and olive oil to her Uncle Kepa.
