Scenic James River, by Mary M. Sikes
Virginia artist and author Mary Montague Sikes shows historic sites along the James River in Virginia, including Evelyn Plantation, Shirley Plantation and Berkeley Plantation. Sikes included photographs and descriptive text of the scenic colonial area where some of our nation's earliest citizens and Native Americans lived and worked. Decades later, the turf here saw many Civil War battles unfold. Visitors to Williamsburg, Richmond and other area cities will enjoy this lush and historic area.
