Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter describes the different aspects of the Rodríguezes family of Gundiás. Eduardo Barreiros was born in the autumn of 1919 in the house of his maternal grandfather, Francisco Rodríguez. Eduardo Barreiros Nespereira had gone some months before to Las Palmas in the Canary Islands to seek new opportunities. Luzdivina Rodríguez, mother of Eduardo, was a strong, good-looking woman who, in 1919, was just over twenty-years old, having been born in 1898. One of her sons, Graciliano, considered her the motor of her family, being intelligent and cultivated, having been to the village school. Luzdivina—a strong character, a lover of discipline, and rather dominating, as one of her grandsons remembers—had spent her childhood in Gundiás, much of it in a house next to where she was living with her father in 1919.
