Eduardo Barreiros and the Recovery of Spain

This chapter discusses Eduardo's interests in agriculture. The chief concession that Eduardo gave to Chrysler in the summer of 1969 was one which declared that after he left Barreiros Diesel, he would not work in the world of motors for five years. In the 1970s, the Barreiros family would go to mass at La Solana when they spent the weekend at the finca, as they often did. There, too, Eduardo would find his builders, his painters, his carpenters, and eventually, his cowmen. As soon as he had bought the farm, he realized that its soil was even drier than he had supposed. Eduardo began to look for water, to seek subterranean rivers, and also sought out sophisticated geologists and old-fashioned water diviners.
