Cattle Country of Peter French 2000
Cattle Country of Peter French. By G. French, Binford & Mort Pub, 2000.
A well-researched account of the life of this famous early Oregon rancher. Peter French left home as a teenager and was hired by Hugh Glenn, the largest wheat grower in California. In 1872 Glenn sent French to establish a cattle ranch in Oregon, in exchange for partial ownership. French drove 1,200 cattle north to Harney County. There he bought a small ranch from a discouraged rancher and began to expand his operation. He controlled the Donner und Blitzen Valley between the Steens Mountains and Malheur Lake, along with Happy and Diamond Valleys and parts of Catlow Valley.
Nice condition with light rubbing to jacket.
