Sample text

Soon the demand for herders became greater than the supply. Sheep ranchers would offer Basques a contract guaranteeing payment of their voyage in exchange for a commitment of several years’ work. But they always needed more men because the herders they employed would eventually leave and go into other lines of business once they paid off their debt. Western senators pushed through special bills that gave permanent residency to Basques who had entered the country illegally, even identifying the illegal immigrants by name.

There would be a few weeks spent in town, living in the boardinghouses, buying new clothes, and enjoying a bit of civilization. Based on these yearly activities, the sheepherder led a life of loneliness, solitude, and self-sufficiency out with the elements in the grazing months, with little contact except to pick up supplies from the camp tender or talk with herders should their trails meet. Some left messages to friends or sketches of women or poems engraved on the aspen trees. Basque Boardinghouses The Basque boardinghouse, with its dining room and bar, served as a home away from home for newly arrived Basques, but it was also home to the itinerant sheepherder for those months when he did not need to be with the sheep, and to mine workers.

Sometimes they didn’t even need an excuse to get together, but the barbecue was typically the central part of the reunion. The same could be said for today’s festivals. The midday meal Seafood In Europe Basque cuisine is best known for its seafood specialties. But this specialization did not make the transition across the Atlantic to a significant degree for several reasons. Most of the herders who came to California came from mountain villages, where seafood was not commonly served. “They were not used to eating fish,” said former California hotel owner Ganix Iriartborde.
