Basye Resident Andrea Sutcliffe wrote a helpful guide to touring the Shenandoah Valley's charming roads. We've used it many times to find little-known scenic vistas and cute towns. Also, Tent Camping In Virginia describes many of Virginia's public recreation areas with details that are helpful to anyone touring the state. (My daughter Marie Javins did the rewrites to this guidebook, and she did a fine job, if I don't say so.)
