Here is "...the story of the longest, most bitter, and most dramatic vendetta in American history - the Hatfield-McCoy scrap which involved the twomost powerful families in West Virginia and Kentucky for fourteen years, the exhoes of which, in a diverted form, are still rumbling today. The feud started over a tragic love affair between Rosanna McCoy and Jonse Hatfield and immediately drew into its web hundreds of people and for a period threatened to cause a civil war between West Virginia and Kentucky...an amazing epic of mountain love and hate and an almost unbelievable picture of little known American life." - dustjacket rear. (Adams Six-Guns 2081).
