I am not a well traveled person. What I know of the Shenandoah Valley is based on a few trips up and down the I-81 corridor. I wanted to know more about the area before an upcoming trip there. This book provided excellent information and good guidance as to where to go and what to see including seasonal events. You also get good information about where you can stay and eat. If you like B&Bs or local establishments I highly recommend this book. It does not provide reviews but it does give the facts. Then, as I did, you can go online and search for reviews. For the record, every location I went to and where I stayed during the week is covered in the book. In fact, two places I visited, Seneca Rocks and Falling Springs Falls, I would not have visited if it were not for Jim Hargans’s book. Any short comings, in my opinion, would be the quality of the maps, which I considered sparse and slightly confusing. I would also prefer to see more photos.

Once again the author has put together a fantastic tour book that contains all of the highlights of the area in one easy to follow guide. I own several of this series and have not been disapointed in any of them. Very well written, accurate and complete. I have been studying the Shenandoah Valley history for about 18 months. This books is a detailed summary of all that I have been able to find in that time. I wish it would have been available when I started my research, it would have saved me much time!
