George Wright, who lived in northern California and Jackson County from 1896 to 1981, was a rancher who raised horses, cows, and pigs. Wright was also a writer and occasional poet who served as a range rider and deputy sheriff. He recorded hundreds of place names in the Soda Mountain Wilderness area and northern California. Pat Harper will share Wright's observations on the people and places in his life, and the changes that occurred in southern Oregon during his lifetime.
