Abstract

West Virginia History, N.S. 2, No.1, Spring 2008 I would like to have learned more about Farr's history relating to Appalachian literature. Before she became editor of Appalachian Heritage, she served as associate editor for the Council of the Southern Mountains' periodical, Mountain Life and Work. She also participated in the Appalachian Writers Workshop at Hindman, Kentucky. Yet, her memoir has little to say about these experiences. Nevertheless, her history is illustrative and poignant, the candid and modest self-portrayal of a woman who has worked hard for years to help readers understand the region and its people. Edwina Pendarvis Marshall University The Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864. Edited by Gary W. Gallagher. (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2006. Pp. xxi, 392.) The Shenandoah Valley Campaign of 1864 was one of the most obvious indicators that the Confederacy was falling apart in the last months of the Civil War.
