Abstract

Book Reviews trol over the black vote may have been reflected in his last words, a racist insult that he shouted at the white Hope family member who killed him. After the death of Bob Stafford, the bad feelings engendered in the first phase of the feud fueled subsequent events. Kearney's analysis, showing the importance of politics as well as economic jealousies and personal hostilities, is insightful. Kearney has done a particularly good job of telling a very complex story that involves many different people. He very helpfully provides an appendix with biographies of all the major characters. There are also appendices containing Kearney's interview with John Goeppinger, a participant in many of the events; the report of Ranger captain Lamartine Sieker of shootings in 1898; and the witness list for the 1912 trial of Frank Stelzig, the man who killed the last victim of the feud.
