summary
Throughout history, Basque men and women have made contributions in navigation, education, science, fashion, politics, and many other fields. Too often these achievements have been overlooked, or have been claimed as the accomplishments of others. Basque Firsts: People who Changed the World profiles seven remarkable Basques who were the first in their fields to do something—something extraordinary—that dramatically impacted others who followed them.
