I WON THIS BOOK FOR FREE ON GOODREADS FIRSTREADS GIVEAWAY

This was an interesting book. It covers the infamous feud between the Hatfields and McCoys during the 1800s. The author spoke with descendants of these families, so you get some of the family stories that were handed down through the generations. The way this feud was portrayed on television varies, on some important parts, from what the author actually found out through historic records and information from descendants. I gave it 3 stars, because I felt that, in certain chapters, there was an excess of information that didn't necessarily pertain to the actual feud or the families. Overall, I found this book to be an interesting read, especially if you are a history buff.

    highly recommended, great read

    Great investigation into previously unknown facts.
    Wish there had been maps and better identification
    of locals.

    Difficult to follow

    I know there are family trees in the beginning, but I can't read them on my Nook Tablet. I'm not sure a printed version would have helped much, as everyone involved seems to have a nickname or two, and many have very similar names. (I do realize this is not the author's fault, but I would have had to create a flow chart, an outline, and the family trees to follow the action.) Plenty of river crossings and ambushes, but did it ever get beyond a retelling of the story to any analysis or conclusions? I don't know. I haven't made it to the end yet.

    Blah.

    I didn't care for it. This is one of those books where you must LOVE the subject to get through it.

    This is a good read, but it is NOT history, much less a new contribution to history. Over half the citations are to newspaper reporters, and the newspapers are notoriously wrong on the facts of the feud.
