Chadwick, Paula (2021) '35 Years of Ground-Based Gamma-ray Astronomy.', Universe, 7 (11). p. 432.
This paper provides a brief, personal account of the development of ground-based gamma-ray astronomy, primarily over the last 35 years, with some digressions into the earlier history of the field.

There has been occasional controversy, great creativity and some heroic determination—all of it part of establishing a new window into the universe.
