About the Author:

Joxe Mallea is a Basque Researcher at the Center for Basque Studies at the University of Nevada, Reno.

From Library Journal:

Many Basque sheepherders came to the American West between 1850 and 1950. As they worked their way through the isolated areas of the West, they carved an amazing variety of items into the bark of the ubiquitous aspen trees. Mallea-Olaexte (history, Truckee Meadows Community Coll. and adjunct faculty, Ctr. for Basque Studies, Univ. of Nevada, Reno) has been documenting and analyzing these carvings, or arborglyphs, in California and Nevada since the 1980s. He has discovered much about the carvers, including how to trace their wanderings through the presence of their carvings. He presents detailed descriptions and analysis of the arborglyphs, from political statements about the Basque homeland to prayers to pictures of nude women. Photos and drawings provide many examples. A rich but narrow study; for academic libraries and specialized collections.AGwen Gregory, New Mexico State Univ. Lib., Las Cruces

Descripción University of Nevada Press, United States, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. 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.
