Another addition to a series that is rapidly taking its place as definitive background guidebooks to these United States. West Virginia -- after one examines this book- emerges as a state that the general public has not appreciated adequately. Its natural beauties have been neglected by the tourist; its importance as a highly industrialized area is bringing it to the fore, after stormy years, in the field of labor. The modern note is struck in the sections on resettlement projects and on labor advances. Follows usual pattern -- general backgrounds, cities, tours.
