When a lumber baron’s 9-year-old son was kidnapped on his way home from school in Tacoma, Washington in 1935, the news gripped the entire nation. The Lindbergh kidnapping was still fresh in the collective memory, and everyone held their breaths, hoping that young George Weyerhaeuser would be found alive and well. This is a story with interesting characters, and puzzling details and intrigue. Join us next week when we interview author Bryan Johnston about his book, Deep into the Woods – a deep delve into the Weyerhaeuser Kidnapping.
