About the Book

"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.



To appreciate fully the growth and development of Glendora and its outlying area it is necessary to look back into the dim and distant past. We know little about the upper reaches of the San Gabriel Valley before white men cast their eyes upon it, but it is not too difficult to read into the past certain things which become obvious with only slight consideration. We do know how the early settlers found the land and from their descriptions we can momentarily return to the era of sagebrush and cactus.
