Tom Benjey, author of Glorious Times:  Adventures of the Craighead Naturalists, will introduce you to one of the earliest families to settle in the Cumberland Valley.  From their home along the Yellow Breeches, the Craighead twins became known for their pioneering work in falconry and radiotelemetry in the South Mountain Cradle of Conservation, and their sister, the Newbery-winning author Jean Craighead George, began her writing career.
