Hatfield-McCoy Feud Comes to Life


Imagine a story of an epic dispute, which has become a part of our American Mythology. Kingdom of the Hollow, the Story of the Hatfields and McCoys is an incredible tale of the most famous feud in our nation’s history. It is a story of jealousy, murder, vengeance and unrequited love that is rich with vivid historical characters in a post Civil War setting.

Many people believe that the Hatfield-McCoy Feud is some hillbilly fable of fiction. With all the colorful images these names may evoke, the average person knows very little about the actual events. It was a very real struggle that was born out of economic jealousy during the tumultuous post Civil War period. In 1878, Randolph McCoy accused his neighbor Floyd Hatfield of stealing one of his hogs. The incidents that followed involved the killings of more than a dozen people, including six of Randolph’s own children. It also entangled a myriad of people including dozens of lawmen, bounty hunters, lawyers and the Governors of Kentucky and West Virginia. It was not just a struggle between two families; it was a war between two states. The conflict involved a legal battle over the habeas corpus laws of the aforementioned states that went before the Supreme Court of the United States.

From the tributaries of Blackberry Creek, Kentucky to the assassination of President McKinley at the Pan American Exposition in 1901, Kingdom of the Hollow takes the reader through the real events of the Hatfield-McCoy feud. It is not a dry history book. It is the first novel of its kind, describing events of this tragic conflict in an entertaining narrative full of detailed characterizations.
