McDowell County, West Virginia (Images of America Series) based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
The photos are great, and for that the book is very worthwhile. Unfortunately, Mr. Archer is neither a writer not an historian, and the book would have benefited by having a historian, such as Alex Schust or Dr. Tom Hatcher (the Mayor of War, WV) write it. McDowell County is a fascinating place with an incredible history and needs a serious historian and a writer to cover it.
I was born and raised in this county. I am so glad Mr. Archer took the time to write about our people and our heritage. We West Virginians have for so long been mislabled as stupid, ignorant, and poor. Thank You for telling it like it really is....A great place to live and raise a family in this tight-knit county.
