"I have attempted to reproduce the flavor of life in the Roanoke Valley over an almost 250-year span. Therefore, rather than trying to name the many colorful and influential people who brought the salt licks, forests and farmland of this bowl to the hundredth birthday of a city named Roanoke, I have chosen people who seemed to typify a given era. ...When reference is made to the Roanoke Valley as an entity, I intend the scope to be as much of the valley as can be seen from the city's airport...." -- Pref.
