The book describes each significant Craighead chapter by chapter, always highlighting their nature-loving and environmental points. The author’s research on the topic could not be more meticulous. Particularly valuable to book people may be the insight that Glorious Times provides into the mind and personality of Jean Craighead George.  <more>
