Join Deer Creek Hills historian David Scharlach as he tells of the amazing first owners of Deer Creek Hills including a cowboy Casanova, a drunken scoundrel and murderer, the intrepid teenage daughter (and survivor) of George Donner and the rancher whose fight with the government over this land went right up to the U. S. Supreme Court.
