THE VIRGINIAN - A Legend
(Huntington Beach, CA)
James Drury, 'The Virginian', was a dedicated Shiloh Ranch Foreman in the setting of Wyoming, which gained its Statehood in 1890. He was a man of strong virtue, who shared the right way to do things and not the wrong way.
Zane Grey, a writer of adventure, had a fascination for
Wyoming and was inspired by Owen Wister's great Western
Wister's novel became a TV Series, with great actors appearing in many episodes. The yesterdays and the present, tell of the popularity of this TV Series. I am happy to have added 'The Virginian' to my collection of "the old West".
