“Luc Basset possessed an obvious dependability combined with sensitivity and virility. A virility that could not be measured in money, success and wittiness, but in strength, stamina and the ability to care for a family, a house, a piece of land. Such men were bound to the land of their ancestors; selling, leasing or even granting a new son-in-law a piece of it was equivalent to having an organ removed.”
