By Jean B. Shannon on February 9, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I grew up in Southwest Virginia, just south of Buchanan County. My father grew up in Buchanan County, and this book gave me a way to visit the landscapes he experienced as a child. The book, consisting primarily of photographs, gives a vivid picture of the lives of coal miners and other laborers. The photographs of the devastating flood of April 1977 and its aftermath are especially compelling.

Novelist Lee Smith grew up in Grundy in Buchanan County, and the book includes a photograph of the building (now demolished) that housed the Ben Franklin Store her father owned. I'm a devoted Lee Smith fan, and that picture was a bonus for me.

Grundy Virginia is the county seat of Buchanan County. This is an excellently presented view in word and imagery of the area from the early days of the country to the demolition of the town buildings except for the Courthouse. The years of my life as a youth were vividly brought to mind of walking along Main Street and the movies enjoyed at the three theaters.
