Los pastores vascos y la guerra de las praderas. Inmigración vasca, industria ganadera y conflictos por las tierras federales en el estado de Nevada, 1890-1934

Iker Saitua

Resumen


Este artículo analiza los conflictos en torno al pastoreo de tierras públicas en el estado de Nevada durante el primer tercio del siglo XX, que enfrentó a ganaderos bovinos y pastores trashumantes de ovejas, así como los intentos del gobierno federal por mitigarlos y poner orden en las praderas del Oeste. Se propone explicar cómo los ganaderos bovinos intentaron afianzar su posición económica sobre las explotaciones ganaderas más pequeñas, enfrentándose a los ovejeros, de posición social más débil y en su mayoría inmigrantes vascos.
