From Richmond Times-Dispatch online

Richmond Times-Dispatch photographer Bob Brown and columnist Bill Lohmann have traveled around Virginia for many years, reporting stories from the Atlantic Ocean to the Blue Ridge Mountains and beyond, introducing readers to fascinating people and places they have met along the way. This hardcover book features a collection of Brown’s photographs from the road and insights from Lohmann that tell the stories behind the pictures.

Brown and Lohmann’s good humor shines through, making readers feel as if they are riding in the back seat on their jaunts around Virginia: venturing deep into mountain hollows, facing down the wind on a perilously beautiful barrier island as a hurricane approaches, sliding into a booth at a down-home diner where the pie is so good you order dessert first.
