Basque Sheepherders The End of an Era
6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Community Library, 415 Spruce Ave., Ketchum
Join Kent and Cathy McAdoo as they share their first-hand experience of living for 13 months in northern Nevada with Basque herders in the early 1970s.  Through a photograph-illustrated presentation, they describe each season in sheep camp, from lambing to summer range, the fall trail, winter range on the desert, and trailing back to the lambing area in spring.  They will share colorful sheep camp stories as they celebrate life among the Basques and remind us of how this culture has left an indelible imprint on the West!
  Because of this experience, they hope to live in a sheep camp when they retire from academic life.  You'll be inspired by their story.
