As a naturalist and conservationist, Don has traveled widely in Africa and Asia, to promote education and conservation for endangered species. As a scholar, Mr. Young is regarded as one of the world's authorities on African explorers and has published several academic works including "The Search for the Source of the Nile" published by the Roxburghe Club. He is a trained forensic osteologist in the field of paleo-anthropology and is the discoverer (along with the safari group he was guiding at the time!) of an important human pre-historic site in northern Kenya.

As an author, Mr. Young is represented by the prestigious Inkwell Literary Agency and is currently writing his first novel: "The Spy, the Lover & the Devil's Brother," based on the story of Capt.

Mr. Young's safaris, public lectures, and his famous fireside stories, have touched the lives of thousands of people. Having devoted his life to teaching about the natural world, Mr. Young hopes that by sharing his knowledge and passion, he can help save wildlife and wilderness for the next generation.

About Us | Don Young Glass Studio

Since 1973: The history of Don Young Glass Studio In 1970, Don Young took a summer job working as an apprentice at Smith Stained Glass Studios in Fort Worth.
He was employed there for about three years learning all stages of stained glass fabrication from cartooning to installation. He worked on several large-scale liturgical projects including the largest mosaic tile mural in North America. The first shop was in his rented home on Galveston Street in south Fort Worth. There he landed several residential, commercial and an important church commission while sharpening his skills. His first public studio opened in 1973 at the Mana Workshop on University Drive in Fort Worth. In 1980, Don Young confounded Texas Glass Artists Association (TGAA). Later that year, TGAA artists held their first public exhibition known as ReThink Glass that traveled to galleries in Fort Worth, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio. Don and Debora Young were married in 1983 beginning an ongoing marital, child-rearing and business partnership as co-owners of the studio. (See personal profiles on right sidebar.) It was during this fertile period in the mid-1980's, that the studio moved back to west Fort Worth and began to flourish.
