"The Great Valley Road of Virginia strikes a very good balance between the academic and the popular. Those interested in cultural landscapes in general, and highway landscapes in particular, will love the book, as well as anyone with an interest in the Shenandoah Valley. This is an intelligent narrative and the depth of research, insight, and attention to detail will make this volume the 'go-to' book on the Shenandoah Valley." -Kevin Patrick, Indiana University of PA, author of Pennsylvania caves and Other Rocky Roadside Wonders
