Narrator Dan Woren affects a credible Southern voice in delivering this story of the legendary bloody feud between the Hatfields and McCoys. King’s work presents the stark details of this inter-family war, which had its origins in the Civil War and its aftermath. The mountains of Appalachia often saw neighbor against neighbor during the war, and the violence carried on afterwards between the generally Confederate-sympathizing Hatfields in what is now West Virginia and their generally Union-sympathizing McCoy neighbors, across the Tug River in Kentucky. The violence seems to take on a life of its own, and while it makes for great stories, the reality is all too tragic. Woren’s Southern accent adds to the presentation, making it seem as if he actually witnessed the events he recounts. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2014]
