The WV Encyclopedia
The West Virginia Encyclopedia
Ken Sullivan (Editor)
Working under the slogan, "All there is to know about West Virginia," the editors of The West Virginia Encyclopedia packed 2,200 articles into the pages of this big book. These articles are the work of nearly 600 writers, experts in many fields pertaining to the history and culture of the Mountain State. In The West Virginia Encyclopedia you will find biographies of hundreds of West Virginians, including every governor; dozens of articles of West Virginia history, from Indian times to the present; histories of every county and all major towns and cities; West Virginia's flora and fauna, folklore and folk arts; and more than 350 illustrations, maps, and tables. Contents are arranged alphabetically and are cross-referenced for easy access. The West Virginia Encyclopedia is the first comprehensive one-volume reference to be published in decades and is a rich sampler of all there is to know about the Mountain State.
