The Good Journey: 150 Years of History at St. Bonaventure University

Buffalo & Erie County Public Library Staff Review by Patricia Covley:
Attention, all St. Bona’s grads – There’s a great new pictorial history of St. Bonaventure University.  The Good Journey:  150 Years of History at St. Bonaventure University is based on the research of Edward Eckert and edited with additional content by Robert, Ann and Daniel McCarthy.  The book begins by describing the founding of what was then St. Bonaventure College in 1858.  The school continued to grow and while in a rather remote location, it was not immune to the challenges of the different eras going on around it.  The book discusses the different forces that shaped the college and how they helped to make the university what it is today.
The photographs in the book are spectacular.  They allow the reader to travel through the different times on campus.  For anyone who has a love for St. Bonaventure University, this book is a must see!

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
