About this product
- DescriptionImagine hiking along a wooded trail in Virginia and stumbling upon the stone foundation of a crumbled building, the wooden slats of the walls caved in, the ironwork of the hinges still dangling on the burned out door. This discovery piques your interest-what is this? What's its significance? How can you find out? Enter Hiking through History Virginia: Exploring the Old Dominion's Past by Trail. The hiking guidebook, which profiles forty hikes (all trails, of varying degrees of difficulty), goes beyond simply stating miles and directions and GPS coordinates for each hike to include rich descriptions of the history underfoot. From Civil War Battlefields like the Petersburg National Battlefield to early settlement sites like Henricus from the 1600s, this book is the perfect companion for any hiker with an interest in history. Make mistake-this is a hiking book first and foremost, complete with rich photos and detailed maps, but with added extras and sidebars detailing eugh historical information to satisfy every curiosity along the way.
