Anyone who wants to know about the Basque experience in America will want to read this book.
In An Enduring Legacy, brothers John and Mark Bieter chronicle three generations of Basque presence in Idaho from 1890 to the present, an engaging story that begins with a few solitary sheepherders and follows their evolution into prominent ethnic community they are today.
Brothers John and Mark Bieter
were born and rasied in Boise Idaho.
John is a contributor to Portraits of Basque in the New World and is director of the Cenarrusa Center, an academic and cultural institute in Boise.
Mark was a Washington, D.C. , correspondent for the Basque National Radio and was active in the American-Basque Foundation.
