The Truth About the Hatfields and McCoys
For more than a century, the feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys has been a legendarily fierce-and far-reaching-clash in the heart of Appalachia. Drawing upon original research, including the discovery of lost and ignored documents and interviews with relatives of both families, bestselling author Dean King finally gives us the full tale, one vastly more enthralling than the myth. Filled with bitter quarrels, reckless affairs, treacherous betrayals, relentless mercenaries, and courageous detectives, The Feud is the riveting story of two frontier families struggling for survival within the narrow confines of an unforgiving land. It is a formative American tale, and in it, we see the reflection of our own family bonds and the lengths to which we might go in order to defend our honor, our loyalties, and our livelihood.
