They lived on either side of Tug fork: Devil Anse Hatfield of West Virginia and Randolph McCoy of Kentucky. Two families of spirited stock locked together in a deadly private feud

They lived on either side of Tug fork: Devil Anse Hatfield of West Virginia and Randolph McCoy of Kentucky. Two families of spirited stock locked together in a deadly private feud. What was the cause of the bitter quarrel that threw the entire country into alarm.

Virgil Carrington Jones. Heavy on the mountaineer stereotype and light on the political and economic context, this 1940's book by a journalist (not a historian) is still a rattlin' good yarn when it sticks to the narrative of the feud.

This is a sober record of the vendetta participated in and perpetuated by Devil Anse Hatfield, who sired twelve, and Randolph McCoy who contributed thirteen. The trouble began over a sow and some pigs, carried through the mountain Romeo and Juliet love affair of Johnse Hatfield and Rose Anne McCoy, until Rose Anne lost her boy to her cousin Nancy, and the death of Ellison Hatfield led to a three-to-one retaliation against the McCoys, to the murder and arson of the 1880's, to kidnapping, to the second ""war"" of 1896-97.

The Hatfield–McCoy feud, also described by journalists as the Hatfield–McCoy war, involved two rural American families of the West Virginia–Kentucky area along the Tug Fork of the Big Sandy River in the years 1863–1891. The Hatfields of West Virginia were led by William Anderson "Devil Anse" Hatfield, while the McCoys of Kentucky were under the leadership of Randolph "Ole Ran'l" McCoy. Those involved in the feud were descended from Joseph Hatfield and William McCoy (born c. 1750).

Cerana
Never Read it, but as a gift, it seems to be a number one. It was especially needed right after the series on television.
Bine
More fiction than history
Jay
It was in perfect condition and just what I wanted as my Grandfather was the sherriff who handled the case. So I wanted another copy for the family to keep.
Dammy

Who in the world would pay $500 for this book? Are you kidding me???? I've read it, it's a summary of the story but really. Buy Otis Rice's book; it's worth your money....
great condition
