Here’s a description of the book:West Virginia is a beautiful place. Go back to wild and wonderful West Virginia in these new poems from award winning poet, LB Sedlacek. Visit the radio telescopes, the Greenbrier River, Hillsboro WV, Beartown, Marlinton WV, and take the old logging train up to Whittaker Station, and more in these place poems. Plus take a detour to nearby Washington, DC on another poetical journey with the author.
