Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The homegrown photography and writing team of Pat and Chuck Blackley present a stunning pictorial about Virginia that captures its scenic wonders and historic uniqueness. The color pictures of beaches, forests, and farmland provide indisputable testimony to the state's rich diversity, while the images of Civil War battlefields and presidents' birthplaces offer telling glimpses into our nation's history. A keepsake.
