Basques that emigrated to Idaho at the turn of the twentieth century left very little information about their lives. About half were literate and of that half we have very little written documentation. However, we do have thousands of tree carvings left behind that at least provide a glimpse into a segment of their lives. This presentation explores Basque arborglyphs and the insight they provide into this immigrant community.
