Reynolds This, the final book in the series, tells how Pennsylvania came up with its state symbols; how professional football began; the lost treasure of Kinzua; Galusha Grow, Speaker of the House during the Civil War; counties that never were; James Wilson, a lawyer entrepreneur who developed Schuylkill County as source of lumber for ships and iron-making, then went on to sign the Declaration of Independence; the Porter family of Norristown whose sons became governors, judges, doctors, railroad presidents, and diplomats. Famous women include Rebecca Lukens, owner of Lukens Steel; Lydia Darragh, an American spy in the Revolutionary War; Widow Finney, owner of the land that became the city of Reading; and philanthropist Sallie Wilson, namesake of Wilson College. There are innovative people such as the Philadelphia school of carousel carvers; Eric Knight, creator of Lassie; Harold Pitcairn, who developed the autogiro, forerunner of the helicopter, and Frank Delong, inventor of the stenographic machine, bobby pin, and the hook-and-eye fastener. The book concludes with the Meadowcroft Rock Shelter, where evidence was found of the earliest civilization in America.
