In Danville, Virginia there’s a street sign on every corner. They keep drivers going in the right direction and make sure the mail gets to the right place. The street names themselves merely... More > serve as guides along the way. But what
if streets could talk?
Lee Wayland, through his careful research brings Danville’s past to life in his book If Streets Could Talk. It’s as if you travel backwards in a time machine and meet people from previous generations. And as you walk with them through their lives, they are no longer distant figures. Most of all they escape the confines of the pages to live in real time, every time you turn a street corner.
If Streets Could Talk gets to the heart of history because the past is not merely about events, but about people. It’s history as it should be told---the inside story that makes what went before interesting.
Lee Wayland’s If Streets Could Talk not only changes the way we think about streets, but this creative look at the past is history at its best.< Less
