This guide is divided into eight chapters, ranging from forty to fourteen pages, each representing eight regions of West Virginia. The longer chapters are divided into as many as five areas, some designated by the name of a city or by geographical features. Boxes feature trivia, events, best attractions, and other incidentals. The restaurants featured tend to be locally owned and operated. Overall, this book tends to be expansive in what it covers, including well-known sites as well as a few that are off the beaten path. It is brief enough that it is easy to read all about any area to be visited and to get some good suggestions as to what to seek out given your interests.
