West Virginian Wayne Worth is producing a filmed documentary "Journey Into The Wild and Wonderful," and is visiting all 55 counties exploring the state's cultural and historical life.
"It will be about the people’s story of their heritage, history, and vision for the future," Worth said.
A social worker by day, Worth is now two years and 39 counties into his goal of creating an educational video about the culture and history of each county in West Virginia.
He said every eighth grade student enrolled in a West Virginia history course should be able to learn more about their home county by 2015.
“You don’t know where you’re headed unless you know where you’ve been,” he said. Like the song made popular by Johnny Cash, Worth can say without exaggeration “I’ve Been Everywhere” across the Mountain State’s landscape from Weirton to Welch.
