“A year after Wayne Sr. purchased Pine Creek Ranch there was a knock at the door – the U.S. Forest Service was calling to try to purchase the ranch and the water rights. The price they offered was half of what the Hages had just paid for it. Wayne’s refusal to sell brought the full forces of the government’s eminent-domain policies against Pine Creek Ranch. But the bureaucrats had squared off with one tough cowboy. Years of legal battles raged, and Wayne Hage’s meticulous research on the rights of property owners resulted in the unsettling account of the fight in his 1989 book, Storm Over Rangelands. During the 90s, Wayne Sr. became one of the country’s leading advocates for private property rights.”
