Hot Sale Historic Photos of West Virginia


West Virginia is a state of overwhelming beauty. Shd traditions, shd tragedies, and shd histories bind its people to the land and each other with a strong sense of place, family, and home. In striking black-and-white photos culled from state and national archives, accompanied by text from an award-winning writer, Historic Photos of West Virginia captures the history of this remarkable state. Even readers unfamiliar with its history will find a compelling drama in its tumultuous birth in the Civil War, its growth as a center for extraction industries and manufacturing, its role as a new homeland for immigrants, and its history as the birthplace of Mother’s Day and of heroes like Charles “Chuck” Yeager. The triumphs of natives like Nobel Prize–winning author Pearl S. Buck and tragedies like the Monongah mine disaster—all depicted here as part of the complex, compelling story of the Mountain State and its people.
