A single PDF of the complete contents of Floydiana, a local history web Compilation about Floyd County, Virginia, including numerous local oral history interviews, which was produced by Randall A. Wells between 2013 and 2017. He described these pages as:
… a serial book, not a blog. Chapter by chapter it explores life in Floyd, a town and county in Southern Virginia. The area’s mixture of people is as unlikely as its scenery is “Look at That!”
Some of the interviewees in Floydiana were also interviewed by the Floyd Story Center oral history program. These include David Allen, Sunny Bernardine, and Lucille Nolen.
