Shenandoah Vestiges: What the Mountain People Left Behind
Shenandoah Vestiges:  What the Mountain People Left Behind
(5th printing, 2017) This book is mostly photographs of places most visitors to Shenandoah National Park never see - deep in what is now the park backcountry. Pictures are heavily supported by explanatory text and other background information. Much of the park was open field and pasture when the park was established in 1937. As the mountain families moved (or were moved) from their homes, they left behind a fascinating history of old homesites and artifacts. Shenandoah Vestiges explores some of what was left behind - the old homes, implements, even children's toys - with explanations of what the artifacts were, and how they were used by mountain families. The book is 71 pages and includes 73 photographs. Readers are reminded that artifacts should not be removed or disturbed.
