I used this book for a school project. It's quite an interesting historical event so you should definitely check it out. Only thing i didn't like about this book is its tendency to get information-dry at some points. If you need only some information summarized, be prepared to read the whole thing...

Outstanding account of the 19th century feud. Lisa Alther lays out the chronology of a conflict that has contradictory accounts of what happened, writing with a very strong sense of style to keep the reader's attention. She herself has connections to the story, gives a thorough explanation of the time and place, the background of the key players, and fills in some of the gaps on root causes and other similar conflicts of the region. A very worthy read, and recommended to anyone who's ever wondered about the story of the feud beyond knowing the bare essentials of the two family names.
