To be fully correct, the image is upside down and backwards. There's no reason to fear this, though many newbies do. It's actually a great composition tool. And after you've worked with a view camera for awhile your brain will adapt and you'll only see the image upside down and backwards if you will it.
Design of view cameras is such that the ground glass is in a frame that's held in place by springs. This frame is pulled backwards (away from the lens) and the film holder is inserted in front of the ground glass. If the camera is set up correctly (and it's fairly rare to have a problem with this) registration between ground glass and film is excellent. So what you see on the ground glass is what you get on the film.
