Bibi Gaston uncovered 5,000 pages of Old Timers letters at the Library of Congress. She has written this book to tell of her great-granduncle, Gifford Pinchot, Chief Forester of the U.S. Forest Service from 1905–1909 and the experiences of his fellow forestry pioneers.
Pinchot served as governor of Pennsylvania from 1923 to 1927 and again from 1931 to 1935. His father had built Grey Towers, which later served as a home to Gifford Pinchot and his family. It is now being administered by the US Forest Service, the federal agency founded by Pinchot which currently maintains the Grey Towers National Historic Landmark in Milford, Pa.
