Description

Join bestselling author Lisa Alther as she talks about her riveting narrative history of America's most infamous fighting families, the Hatfield's and the McCoys. Ms. Alther, a native of Appalachia whose distant ancestors stood on the fringes of the clan violence, offers a fresh, new take on the feud that gripped a nation and ripped a region apart in a bitter family rivalry that has become legendary in American folklore.

Alther is a graduate of Wellesley College with a BA in English literature. In addition to Blood Feud, she has also written six novels, as well as a memoir, Kinfolks, and a collection of short stories entitled Stormy Weather. Four of these were New York Times bestsellers. Her books have been translated into 17 other languages and have appeared on bestseller lists worldwide.
