Jim Rogers

Jim Rogers is one of the most influential people you’ve probably never heard of. He’s a mountain man who lives deep in the woods. Yet his influence extends all the way to Washington DC. He helped create not one, but two official wilderness areas in Oregon. Some people call this environmental logger the “John Muir of the Elk River.”
