In pictures: California's Basque shepherds


Lonely fields

Not far from the interstate that runs through California, down a dirt road past the small town of Lost Hills, you find a modest shepherd's dwelling.

It is here that a shepherd can pass many days, tending his sheep or watching his flock graze on the dusty green brush of the desert.

It is a way of life that dates back more than 150 years.
