We'll meet the author of a new book about the 100-year-old feud between the Hatfields and the McCoys. The families, who famously battled for generations in southern Appalachia, may have begun their feud over a bunch of pigs. No matter the true origin of the battles, the families have captured the imaginations of people across the country for years and the story of the feud has more recently been chronicled in documentaries, TV miniseries and several books. We'll talk with the author of a book on the Hatfields and McCoys with some new takes on their revenge story, when Charlotte Talks.
