A LIFE AND DEATH OF OREGON CATTLE KING PETER FRENCH 1849-1897

by Edward Gray

The west was a place of dreams for thousands of people, and this was also the case for Peter French, who operated the largest known cattle ranch in the region. Backed financially by Dr. Hugh Glenn of Jacinto, California, French made his way to Oregon in 1872 with 1,200 head of cattle.

French and his men settled in the Donner and Blitzen Valleys of southeast Oregon, where his cattle had plenty of room to roam, and plenty of grass to feed on.
