It’s 1888, in Hazard, Kentucky…What will one day be known as The French-Eversole Feud (due west of the notorious Hatfields & McCoys) has ignited. Teenager Ezekiel Snopes must recover quickly from the loss of his younger sister—gunned down by a greedy feudist. He must now decide if he wants to live or die, remain at home, or, take a stand against such lawlessness in the Appalachian hills. Regardless of what he does, the feud wages on…This is a real period of American history. And Ezekiel Snopes is just unlucky enough to be born in the midst of it.
