The Heart of Spain: Families and Food Selected for Independent Book Prize
Williamsburg, VA — May 23, 2011 — Following months of praise from reviewers and readers, Don Harris’s personal reflection on Spanish food and culture has received yet another honor, winning the 2011 National Indie Excellence Book Award in the Travel category. The book, which incorporates Don’s own recollections and knowledge of cultural history, spans more than 40 years of Harris’s experience with Spain and its people, from his first visit as a U.S. Navy chaplain to the profound connections he has made working with traditional farmers and artisans for his own family business.
