Episode 4 - West Virginia: By God! Sea to Shining Sea

    • Society & Culture

As the American Discovery Trail crosses the Potomac into West Virginia, it leaves behind the flat, easy walking of Delaware and Maryland, finding its ways into hill country. The most rugged--and also, arguably, the most sublime--stretch of the ADT east of the Rockies looms in Dolly Sods. In this episode, the ADT's State Co-Coordinator for West Virginia, Sharon Weekley, describes the route through her state, from the Potomac to the Ohio. She is followed by Gerald D. Swick, an author and journalist with a deep understanding of the West Virginian history. In a wide-ranging conversation, we discuss natural resources, the Civil War, labor battles, lion leash laws, and at least a dozen other topics. Montani semper liberi!
