Interesting topic but the book is weakly constructed -- it reads more like a college term paper than a historical book. Odd mix of the author's personal views and family connection to the McCoys, rehashing of the Hatfield-McCoy feud chronology, followed by analysis of other Appalachian feuds. I really don't like purported history books full of footnotes with snarky editorial comments, but you will find several of those here.
