Oregon Field Guide "River of the Rogues"
Thank you for joining OPB for a special screening of Oregon Field Guide's "River of the Rogues."
This special tells the colorful stories of how we shaped the river and how in turn, the Rogue River shaped our lives. History and geography take us from the robust headwaters on the north flank of Mount Mazama, to, as writer Zane Grey described, "the river’s calm majesty when it found its home in the infinite sea." [Rogue River Feud, 1929].
River of the Rogues
People from around the world raft the Rogue or fish for her steelhead. Along the journey lie hints of the river’s sometimes violent past: the gold mines, the now invisible Indian villages, the battle sites. River of the Rogues tells the tales of the people and the events that shaped the river.
