As a scion of one of the feuding families of the Allegheny and Cumberland hills, and one whose forebearers began their trek westward from the Virginia coast, I offer the following for all who may be interested or desire to hear the facts from one who has first-hand knowledge of the people of whom he writes, so says Dr. Coleman C. Hatfield in the foreword of this title. This unique book is about two proud families. It is a title that includes a comprehensive timeline of the Hatfield family migration westward and documents the history before, during and following the bloody Hatfield and McCoy feud era. Included are special stories, which have never been published before, offered directly from the Hatfield family that adds color and clarity to this famous vendetta. This work also includes the exhaustive research of the late C. A. Hatfield, a well-known attorney in the City of Logan. Besides being historically significant, this volume is a wonderful keepsake for those who love American history, or to those who call the Appalachian Mountains home.
