I ask to see the book.
Linda Early Kearney
I really enjoyed the early part but the last 100 pages dealing almost completely with elections was very very boring.

She wanted to read a more in depth book on the history of Va .

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Despite recent publications timed to coincide with 400 years of permanent English settlement, this is the most complete, insightful and well-written history of Virginia available. Don't be put off by the fact that it's somewhat dated. Dabney covers Virginia like the morning dew, with particular attention to biographical details of important men and women from Virginia's past. Also, Dabney balances politics, economics and culture well in this book, treating each with careful attention. One minor infraction: His attention to the Virginia upstate, west of the Blue Ridge, is somewhat arbitrary, a common problem among Virginia scholars. Hopefully historians take up this issue in due time.

I purchased this book because my 5th grade son needed to do a book report on the state of Virginia. It is an ok book but hard to follow along.

I purchased this book for my mom who was born and raised in Va. She wanted to read a more in depth book on the history of Va . She thoroughly enjoyed the book and would recommend this book to those interested in history and especially the history of Va. She is now passing the book onto a fellow Va friend who loves to read history books too and I am sure he will enjoy it just as much as she did.
