Southern Oregon is full of history, interesting characters, and fascinating stories. Madstone tells the story of Alfred and Charlie Fattig. Two conscientious objectors of WWI who retreated deep into southwest Oregon's rugged mountains where they hid out for three years, feasting on everything from bear to squirrel. Their saga is one of survival in what is now the Kalmiopsis Wilderness, arguably one of the ruggedest areas in the contiguous United States.
