The original hardbound two-volume set of this local history for the region surrounding the Kanawha River, which begins in the northwesternmost mountains of North Carolina and flows through Virginia, West Virginia, and state capital Charleston, before emptying into the Ohio River at Point Pleasant. Follows the old standard for histories of this era: with historic and thematic approaches contained in the first volume, and individual biographical sketches of notable residents filling much of the second. Please note that while this copy is hardly in the best of shape, it IS an original print copy. It is not a newer paperback, ebook, or print-on-demand creation. These finds are as scarce as hen's teeth. A good binder has what they need to work with here.
