The story of Glen Eyrie and the family that called it home. Full of real stories that bring life to the people behind the Castle, Stephen May transports you to the world of dreams, innovation, and a gothic-style castle nestled in the hills of the Wild West.
General William Palmer, founder of Colorado Springs and the Denver and Rio Grande Railroad, is well known to Coloradoans. But lesser known and just as compelling in many ways, are his wife Queen and their daughters, who inhabited one of the great houses in the West: Glen Eyrie. Almost like a fairytale in its conception, their relationship was a fascinating blend of frontier challenges and gracious living amid the Wild West of the 1870s and ‘80s.
