Reuben A. Long was a horseman, rancher and philosopher, as well as one of Eastern Oregon's most colorful characters. Many of his recollections wound up in a book called "The Oregon Desert" (Caxton Press, 1964). In the spirit of that book, this program looks back at the places, events and people Reub Long wrote about and features several interviews with local folks who knew him.
