Southern Virginia’s heritage is rife with stories of the past and the buildings to go with them. Take a step back in time, into the Deep South, and learn about Civil War spies, including Richmond resident Elizabeth Van Lew, one of very few female spies. Step inside a lunatic asylum in Radford, into a world where apparitions are more common than visitors. Author and photographer Liz Roll takes you on a marvelous journey through where the South truly begins: Richmond, the austere capitol of Virginia and home to many beautiful abandoned sites with rich histories. Liz Roll weaves the reader through all these tales with a keen eye for beauty among the ruins.
