Summary
Into the valley of Donner and Blitzen, almost a century ago, rode Peter French with 1,200 head of California cattle. John Devine of White Horse Ranch was already in the Harney country of Southeast Oregon, but the Blitzen was left for Peter. This is the story of how the great stockmen of the late 1800s set a pattern for modern cow ranches, improving the land and cattle by the best scientific methods available. Peter French himself irrigated thousands of acres of sageland with his canals and ditches. Hard-driving and ambitious, French, in a few years, won control of 200,000 acres of range land, and thousands of head of cattle
