Fernández Saldaña rememorates José María of Iparraguirre´s American period (1858-1877). He disembarked in Buenos Aires, married Angela Querejeta the following year and marched to Uruguay where he worked as a shepherd and then ran a cafe. These experiences turned out to be disastrous from the economic point of view. Iparraguirre - who never stopped singing in Basque - had six daughters and two sons. But nostalgia of his homeland overcame him, and thanks to a subscription opened by the Basques from America he was able to return to the Basque Country and stay there for the last four years of his life.
