Devil’s Backbone – Synopsis


In this riveting sequel to The Legend of See Bird: The Last Long Drive, dedicated to the author’s great-grandmother, Sally Carpenter, wife of See Bird, See Bird is a friend of “Devil Anse” Hatfield who draws See Bird into the infamous feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys.

The story is set in West Virginia, so it is riddled with expressive language, authentic mountain dialect and a convincing sense of place, come from the experience of someone who has actually lived there.

This is a tale of conflict as old as the hills.
