Glorious Times tells the fascinating and important story of the Craighead naturalists, an American clan of Scots-Irish that settled in the early 1700s in Pennsylvania.

Whether it was saving the grizzlies in Yellowstone Park, writing the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, or receiving a Newbery Award, this was a family of remarkable “doers” perhaps best viewed collectively.
