9780874177626: Speaking Through the Aspens: Basque Tree Carvings in Nevada and California (Basque Series)
Review:

"J. Mallea-Olaetxe has produced an encyclopedic work on the carvings, answering many questions about the Basque people in the mountain west." - James Snyder, historian, National Park Service "Speaking Through the Aspens is nothing less than the definitive study of Basque aspen art in the American West." - Michael Claytor, emeritus professor of anthropology, Sierra College"

From the Publisher:

Hikers in the mountains of the Far West have long known about mysterious carvings found on aspen trees but few have researched their intent or significance. Historian J. Mallea-Olaetxe has spent more than two decades recording and studying these arboglyphs, which were largely the work of Basque sheepherders.The carvings - names, dates, phrases in several languages, even human and animal figures - provide a unique and important record of the lives of the solitary Basque sheepherders. For the first time, these men, who contributed so much to the development of the region, speak for themselves about their experiences.Author Mallea-Olaetxe analyzes the content of thousands of arboglphs in the mountains of Nevada and California. In addition, he has examined artifacts such as sheep camps and bread ovens, conducted extensive interviews with former herders and sheep company personnel, and undertaken research in immigration and other records. The result is a highly original work of history. Enhanced by 94 photographs and line drawings, this book is essential reading for scholars and anyone interested in the Basque experience.

Descripción University of Nevada Press, Reno, 2008. Softcover. Estado de conservación: New. 256 pages. Softcover. New book. BASQUE CULTURE. Speaking Through the Aspens analyzes the content of thousands of arboglyphs in the mountains of Nevada and California by topicÑlanguage, politics, the Basque homeland, the sheepherd's life, sex, and pictorial themes. In addition, author Mallea-Olaetxe has examined such sheepherder artifacts as sheep camps and bread ovens, conducted extensive interviews with former herders and sheep company personnel, and undertaken research in immigration and other records. The result is a highly original work of historyÑa detailed account of the lives of Basque sheepherders in the American West. For the first time, these men who contributed so much to the development of the region, many of whom went on to establish the West's thriving Basque community, speak for themselves about their experiences. Enhanced by numerous illustrations, this book is history at its most engrossing, essential reading for scholars and anyone curious about the arboglyph phenomenon. Joxe Mallea is a Basque Researcher at the Center for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno. His full curriculum vitae can be found here. "The carvings on the trees are the library of the forest. I have been reading in that library for years, trying to understand some of its meaning. We know about those who left other written records or more public careers. This book may be as close as we can get to an invitation to sit at a sheepherder's fire decades ago, or to follow him through the aspens with his flocks. J. Mallea-Olaetxe has produced an encyclopedic work on the carvings, answering many questions about Basque people in the mountain west. I will reevaluate my own work in light of his." ÑJames Snyder "Speaking Through the Aspens is nothing less than the definitive study of Basque aspen art in the American West." ÑMichael Claytor "Previous publications of aspen carvings have been written by non-Basque individuals. Mallea-Olaetxe, as a Basque immigrant, offers a unique perspective of the literal and substantive interpretation of this type of art and inscription." ÑSociety for California Archaeology Newsletter, March 2001 "Speaking Through The Aspens is a seminal work of original scholarship." - The Midwest Book Review ".this book is history at its most engrossing, essential reading for scholars and anyone curious about the arboglyph phenomenon." - Sierra Heritage Magaine (Key Words: J. Mallea-Olaetxe, Basque Sheepherders In The American West, Basque People In The American Mountain West, Basque Tree Carvings In California And Nevada, Basque Aspen Art In The American West, The Arboglyph Phenomenon). book.
