Glendora, the annals of a southern California community 1 edition
"In Donald Pflueger the town of Glendora has a biographer whose work combines a feeling for the colorful aspects of the community's foundations and growth with strict canons of historical accuracy. He has been remarkably successful in seeing all sides of the life of the town, and in his narrative he makes his reader aware of the many facets of the subject. The book is not only a fine piece of local history but ti also has a more universal application. The experience of Glendora, with variations of course, has been that of dozens of other western towns, and in this close study of one community the reader has opened to him a broad phase of American History through this specific example." - John Haskell Kemble, Professor of History, Pomona College - From book jacket.
