Recently, I visited with oldest living descendant of the famous western-frontier cowboy, George F. Wright. George’s nephew, Tom Wright showed me an amazing collection of  journals and other assets related to that pioneer-days cowboy, George F. Wright.

Natural History Journal By George F. Wright

Tom Wright is going to be 84-years old this May. Through an exclusive representation agreement, Tom provided with over 200-pages of dated journal entries, deeds, miscellaneous short stories and, the family photo album going back to 1911!

All these natural history and historical records are related to Jackson County Oregon, Siskiyou County California (OR-CA border area) and the present day Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument and native species American wild horses.

Local fossil record that shows wild horses have been present in and around the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument since time immemorial and through today.

It seems pretty clear through cultural archaeology and paleontology that public land now called the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument was the natural habitat for native species American wild horses.  And that information was arguably  concealed by the BLM from the public and Congress when the Monument was created in the year 2000 in light of the 1971 Wild Burro and Horse Protection Act, which stated that as of Dec. 1971, all wild horses are protected wherever they are found in America as of Dec. 1971.

George F. Wright had a cabin that was just 3-miles as the crow flies from my own present-day cabin at Wild Horse Ranch. And like me, he loved horses, including the wild horses that in the past numbered in the hundreds on the present-day Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument... along with numerous grizzly bears, including the famous grizzly that was named Realfoot. That story, which George also wrote about, 'The True Story Of RealFoot', is a great story based upon the real-life drama and life one of the largest grizzly bears on the Oregon-California border.
