The `spaghetti western`phenomenon of the 1960s and 1970s was one of the most astonishing periods in European film history. Numerous westerns, and most of the iconic masterpieces of the genre, such as Sergio Leone's `Dollars Trilogy`, used the landscape of the Spanish province of Almeria to replicate the American West. Almeria was a land of almost perpetual sunshine, dramatic deserts and valleys, and atmospheric white-washed pueblos. Its parched beauty played an important role in defining the look of the genre. And the relentless filming of westerns had a powerful impact on the economy and social life of a beautiful but very poor and previously isolated part of Spain. This book is the first in English to tell the story of the relationship between Almeria and the spaghetti western.
