“Turncoat!” I’m Guilty and Here’s How It Happened 1

Michael Booth’s Book Relates the Metamorphosis from American Boy to Spanish Turncoat

The Turncoat ChroniclesHow does a young man from deepest Midwestern U.S.A. transform himself from a normal American college student, ad agency shill and conscript soldier into a card-carrying Spanish citizen? And why? This is the story that Michael Booth recounts–45 years on–in his ebook, The Turncoat Chronicles. Booth, who discovered a Spanish village outside Granada in 1969 where he made a home for his family, still lives there. In the intervening four-and-a-half decades he has learned valuable lessons of simplicity, humility, humanity and solidarity. His teachers: the uncomplicated and generous villagers of his pueblo. In parallel with this account of the life of a Spanish village runs his narrative of what was happening in the country of his birth over the past century. The contrast between the two systems could not be more dramatic. The following links will introduce you to both worlds.
