One of our foremost resources was this book, the work of Otis Rice. Of the many available texts covering the Hatfield-McCoy feud, Rice outshone all the others.
The writing is a little stiff but since the topic is so engaging, most readers won't mind the scholastic text. This book has my highest recommendation for those interested in the history of Appalachia.
