Based on an acclaimed exhibition at the Virginia Historical Society, the book studies three stages of migration to, within, and from Virginia. Each stage has its own story to tell. Together they offer an opportunity to study the westward movement through three centuries, as it has rarely been studied before.
David Hackett Fischer is Warren Professor of History at Brandeis University and award-winning author. James C. Kelly served as Assistant Director for Museums for the Virginia Historical Society.
