Overview

The Coffin Quilt: The Feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys by Ann Rinaldi

Fanny McCoy has lived in fear and anger ever since that day in 1878 when a dispute with the Hatfields over the ownership of a few pigs set her family on a path of hatred and revenge. From that day forward, along the ragged ridges of the West Virginia-Kentucky line, the Hatfields and the McCoys have operated not withing the law but within mountain codes of their own making. In 1882, when Fanny's sister Roseanna runs off with young Johnse Hatfield, the hatred between the two clans explodes.
As the killings, abductions, raids, and heartbreak escalate bitterly and senselessly, Fanny, the sole voice of reason, realizes that she is powerless to stop the fighting and must learn to rise above the petty natures of her family and neighbors to find her own way out of the hatred.

I very much enjoyed this book! It was very well written in my opinion and stuck very closely to the historical facts that I have read concerning this feud. The only thing I am kind of confused about is other reviews of this book saying there was too much killing for their liking and the people involved were portrayed as hateful, evil, and other such things. My point is that this was based on historical events and real people, the author could not leave some of the killings out or change what these people did during this historical feud or it would be fiction. Right? My opinion is that if you want to read only a certain amount of violence and really nice people then you should not read a book based on historical facts.

This book was excellent. I loved reading it with my classmates, and I’m pretty sure they enjoyed it too! It was very well-written, and the events were in really good details.

This book is very informative about both the feud between the Hatfields and McCoys, and about West Virginia and Kentucky's history in general. A relationship between two people from the different families opens old wounds in the families, heating things up for a personal war between them all over the mountain ranges. This mystifying and intriguing book has its own flavorfull taste that you can enjoy again and again.

What a eye opening book. The book allows the reader to put themselves in West Virginia history. Many emotions seep through the lines. Sadness, waste, pain, anger, and appreciation for what we have now to be thankful for. A must read!

This book about the Hatfield and McCoy feud was interesting and well written. I was interested in reading more after watching the recent tv miniseries. While the book will state that it is fictionalized, it still followed the timeline of actual events.

Very engrossing read. A true american tragedy. Typos were a bit distracting.

This is a very good story written about a fascinating series of events in American history. I love the interesting perspective using the young McCoy daughter as the storyteller. I would highly recommend this book.

The Coffin Quilt by Ann Renaldi was a very well written book. About the Hatfield and McCoy fued. It tells the story of a curious, 14 year old girl named Fanny McCoy. This story is an adventurous, and courageous story.
