West Virginia: A Film History is a two-DVD set chronicling West Virginia's story from prehistory to the recent past.ᅠ

Originally broadcast as a popular public television series, West Virginia weaves motion picture footage, historic photographs, first-person interviews, quotes from letters and diaries, and live cinematography into a compelling narrative enhanced by a rich musical score.

The 6 1/2 - hour documentary, narrated by Richard Thomas, chronicles the frontier era, settlement, the Civil War and statehood, railroads, immigration and industrialization, then moves down through the 20th century. Special consideration is given to pivotal episodes such as the Mine Wars, the Hatfield-McCoy Feud, Buffalo Creek, and the 1960 presidential primary. Countless individual West Virginians are featured, as well as national figures including George Washington, John Kennedy, and Eleanor Roosevelt. Historians offer commentary at key points.ᅠ

West Virginia: A Film History is a production of the West Virginia History Film Project and the West Virginia Humanities Council. The two-DVD set is broken down into four parts and 27 topical chapters. It is the unforgettable story of America's Mountain State. Buy it for yourself or as the perfect gift.

Price = 29.95 USD
