Vicki Croke on "The Lady & the Panda"

The Lady and the Panda

Vicki Croke is the author of “The Lady and the Panda.” The book tells the story of Ruth Harkness, a New York City dress designer and socialite who brought the first giant panda back from China in 1936.  Croke tells Jim Fleming how Harkness succeeded where other adventurers failed.  We also hear Harkness in historic recordings from the 1930s.
