Glorious Times: Adventures




Glorious Times tells the fascinating story of an American family that settled near the South Mountain “Cradle of Conservation,” next to the Yellow Breeches Creek, with woods, fields and meadows and the mountain a walk away. For centuries “Craighead Station,” Pennsylvania was and still is “home” though many members settled elsewhere. But they always returned. Tom Benjey’s engaging telling of the family’s history focuses special attention on the generation we know best: that of the twins Frank, Jr., John and their sister Jean Craighead George. But the author also shines a light on the important contributions all of the Craighead naturalists have made to American history, conservation and education.
