Member of the Basque Studies Society (Eusko Ikaskuntza), of the Royal Academy of the Basque Language (Euskaltzaindia) and professor emeritus. In this book, the author traces the main datums of his life: he was born in Paris, in a family coming from Zuberoa; he spent forty years in the French capital, and then eight year between Paris and the Basque Country; and, finally, thirty years in the latter. As his four main activities, he cites biology, ethnology, Basque language teaching and Basque nationalism. He adds a list of his forty-three books and more than two hundreds published articles.
