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.

Sandra Farris-third book, LADY ACE, has just been released

      Sandra Farris’ third book, LADY ACE, has just been released and can be ordered through barnesandnoble.com, amazon.com, booksamillion.com or iUniverse.com. 

      On a charter flight with a passenger on board to Oregon’s Briar Meadows Ranch, the left engine of Cimmaron Air’s Beech Baron freezes on final approach.  Kasey O’Brien has to set the plane down without the aide of emergency services, thus earning her the nickname, Lady Ace. 

      During the inspection of the engine, she discovers an oil line has been purposely cut and is forced to stay at the ranch until a replacement can be flown in.  Since he failed, would the saboteur make another attempt on her life, or was her passemger the target?

      Taken from the Write Word, the newsletter of the Society of Southwestern Authors Vol. 37. No. 2 April-May 2009.
