Overview

You think you know who they were, why they fought, why they died. You know only the black-and-white version-now experience the feud in full color. Over 100 years ago the Hatfield-McCoy feud bloodied the West Virginia-Kentucky border and threatened the lives and fortunes of Cap Hatfield and his family. Encouraged by wealthy men who used courtrooms and political power to their advantage, the feud threatened to explode into a second War Between the States. In The Devil's Son, follow the journey of Cap, son of Anderson "Devil Anse," the feared patriarch of the Hatfield clan. Leading the family's efforts to survive, Devil Anse loses too many battles, and Cap must step up. Armed with intelligence and determination, Cap sets out to save his family while he wrestles with coming of age in the shadow of the Devil.

What People are Saying About This

Dean King
A vividly imagined and engrossing novel that ably fills the gaps of history, like chinks in a cabin wall, and brings the mountain wilderness, the Tug Fork, and the Hatfield-McCoy feud boldly to life. (Dean King, author of the national bestseller Skeletons on the Zahara and the forthcoming The Feud: The All-American, No-Holds-Barred, Blood-and-Lust Story of the Hatfields and McCoys.)
Mark Cowen
Never before has an author so vividly captured the drama, action and character of what stands as America's most famous feud. Anne Black Gray has dared to step beyond the "legend" surrounding the Hatfields & McCoys. THE DEVIL'S SON now stands as the benchmark book on this subject. (Mark Cowen, director/producer, Emmy®-nominated HBO documentary, BAND OF BROTHERS: We Stand Alone Together.)
