    A true masterpiece!

    Clara Fountain has rendered into words and pictures via postcards the very essence of Danville, VA. I attended Averett College in Danville, VA for four years, and Danville is a town very close to my heart as is the history of southside Virginia. Ms. Fountain's stunning views of the city and concise and descriptive writing style took me back to Danville. The book is an outstanding addition to any library, and Ms. Fountain is due a very heart felt hats off.
