His mother, who, when his father died, was left in straitened circumstances. Oddie, who was well educated and loved music, continually assured his mother that success in mining took time and patience but would pay off handsomely in the end and that all would be well with her and his sisters.

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1452, Bizkaians assembled at the Oak of Gernika and approved the Fuero Viejo de Bizkaia (the Old Law of Bizkaia) one of Europe's most important yet little known medieval legal codes. Its laws encompassed an extraordinary range of individual and collective liberties, anticipating the 18th-century Declarations of Rights contained in the constitutions of the U.S. and France. It was extraordinarily modern in both spirit and letter and attracted the attention and admiration of John Adams and William Wordsworth. Its influence survives to the present day, underpinning Bizkaian and Basque claims to their own political identity within the Spanish state. Distributed for the Center for Basque Studies
