520    This book examines the complexities of life for African 
       Americans in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley from the 
       antebellum period through Reconstruction. Although the 
       Valley was a site of fierce conflicts during the Civil War
       and its military activity has been extensively studied, 
       scholars have largely ignored the Black experience in the 
       region until now. Correcting previous assumptions that 
       slavery was not important to the Valley, and that enslaved
       people were treated better there than in other parts of 
       the South, Jonathan Noyalas demonstrates the strong hold 
       of slavery in the region. He explains that during the war,
       enslaved and free African Americans navigated a borderland
       that changed hands frequently-where it was possible to be 
       in Union territory one day, Confederate territory the next,
       and no-man's land another. He shows that the region's 
       enslaved population resisted slavery and supported the 
       Union war effort by serving as scouts, spies, and laborers,
       or by fleeing to enlist in regiments of the United States 
       Colored Troops. Noyalas draws on untapped primary 
       resources to continue the story and reveal the challenges 
       African Americans faced from former Confederates after the
       war. He traces their actions, which were shaped uniquely 
       by the volatility of the struggle in this region, to 
       ensure that the war's emancipationist legacy would
