One of the finest books about the origins of West Virginia and its rise to statehood, John Alexander Williams's classic West Virginia: A History is back in print. In his clear style, Williams organizes the tangled strands of West Virginia's past around a few dramatic locations and pivotal events: the battle of Point Pleasant, John Brown's insurrection at Harpers Ferry, the Paint Creek labor movement, the Hawk's Nest and Buffalo Creek disasters. These events serve as introductions to discussions of statehood, war, and industrialization, with Williams always conveying a true feel for the lives of West Virginians and the powerful influence of the land. Highly recommended for students and teachers of West Virginia history and for Mountain State history buffs.
