Blood Feud : The Hatfields and the McCoys - The Epic Story of Murder and Vengeance
America's most notorious family feud began in 1865 with the murder of a Harmon McCoy, a Union soldier, by a Confederate Hatfield relative. But Southern grudges run long and deep. More than a decade later tempers flared over stolen hogs. This accusation triggered years of bloody violence and retribution that led to a tragic Romeo-and-Juliet interlude, a Supreme Court ruling, and Kentucky's last public hanging. The final feud trial took place in 1898, but the rivalry didn't end there. Its legend continues to have an enormous impact on the popular imagination and the people of the region. Here is a fascinating new look at the infamous story of the Hatfields and the McCoys.

1 . Good book, skip the last chapter
Posted September 07, 2012 by Jim , AlamogordoOverall, I thought this was a pretty good book. The family ties are hard to follow, but the overall history was well researched and written. The chapter on other feuds and why this one is so significant was interesting. the last part(s) of the book where the author starts to ramble about the continuing problems of the region and how bad corporations are was somewhat incongruous. Sort of what one would expect from a stereotypical NE educated college grad.
