Blood and sand by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez( Book )

20 editions published between 1913 and 2015 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vincente Blasco Ibanez, in Blood and Sand, wrote a novel that can never lose its popularity because it presents a blazing picture of Spanish life as it can be lived only in Spain. A life that was flaming, tempestuous, fierce, and magnificent while it lasted. A life of heroes and idol worship, of hate, and love in a setting of gorgeous beauty. It is the story of one of the world's most fearless men, men who defy death in the arena for love and fame. From the lowest ranks of poverty to unprecedented heights of riches and popular acclaim, thus was the career of Juan Gallardo, Spanish bull fighter. In telling his story, Ibanez has achieved a novel even more dramatic and powerful than his legendary Four Horsemen. From his boyhood, Juan longed to be a bullfighter and, as he climbs the ladder step by step, the reader lives with him in the very atmosphere of the arena. No detail of the picture is spared: one can see and almost hear the actual battle, the crowds, and the many characters that stream through the pages. And Juan himself, with his vanities, his superstitions, his daring attacks, his wounds and recoveries, emerges as real, vital, and colorful as the sport to which he and many others dedicated their lives
