Title:  Blood feud : the Hatfields and the McCoys : the epic story of murder and vengeance

Author: Lisa Alther

Collection:  Adult Non-Fiction

Lisa Alther tries to uncover some of the myth and legend surrounding the blood feud surrounding the West Virginian Hatfields and Kentucky McCoy rivalry with a touch of dry humor in her new book. In her quest to discover new information and dispel untruths, Alther discovered that her family, by marriage, tied into the infamous Fighting McCoys. Running on the heels so closely to the History Channel’s miniseries, “The Hatfields and McCoys,” Blood Feud is a good book to fill in all the spaces.

I was fortunate enough in 1978-80 to attend the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. One of my acquaintances and fellow art students was a young man who very much resembled the character of Johnse Hatfield in the movie. Guess what his last name was?
