rafting_medium_zaneEric Grey, great-grandson of the famed Western Novelist said, “Zane Grey was very concerned about the vanishing wilderness in America…”

“On one of his trips to the Rogue with his family, Grey noted he was glad his son could ‘still see something of wild America’ but he feared that his grandson never will.

Three generations later, I am glad to say that the Rogue is still a beautiful wilderness. Thanks to the work of The Trust for Public Land, Zane Grey’s cabin at Winkle Bar will be preserved for future generations of Americans,” said Eric Grey.

Grey was born in 1872 and later moved west and became a writer. He bought the Winkle Bar property in 1926 and set up camp to write and fish for salmon and steelhead trout. His book, “Rogue River Feud,” focused on the river.
