The article profiles ex-priest Joxe Mallea-Olaetxe from Urepele in southwestern France. He studies history on trees and records the engravings left by Basque sheepherders in aspen grooves throughout the mountains of the American West. His tenure as a priest in Elco was ended in 1970 after getting in trouble with his bishop for officiating at a wedding in a Methodist church. He has acquired a doctoral degree from University of Nevada and rediscovered arborglyphs by accident on Peavine Mountain at the edge of Reno.
