What People Are Saying

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.)
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.)

    Biased Retelling

    I read a factual account of the feud first and that spoiled this book for me. This book is written by someone recalling stories of Cap Hatfield as relayed by relatives. As such is is very biased and paints the Hatfields in a totaly different light. Both sides of the feud were guilty of murder, cheating, lying, you name it.
