Abstract

Southwestern Historical Quarterly July No Hope for Heaven, No Fear of Hell: The Stafford-Townsend Feud of Colorado County, Texas, 1871­1911. By James C. Kearney, with Bill Stein and James Smalllwood. (Denton: University of North Texas Press, 2016. Pp. 352. Photographs, notes, bibliography, index.) No Hope for Heaven, No Fear of Hell is a fascinating and sophisticated examination of a Texas feud that should be of interest to scholars of Texas history, the West, and the South. The book is also one that the non-scholarly reader interested in any of these areas will find absorbing. Bill Stein, the director and archivist at the Nesbitt Memorial Library in Columbus, Texas, who died in 2008, conceived the idea for this book. Stein collected much of the primary material upon which it is based, but died before he was able to shape it into a book. His family left that task to James C. Kearney, a well-known scholar of Texas Germans and also a native of Colorado County. With input from James Smallwood, noted Reconstruction scholar (now deceased), who suggested ways to organize the book, Kearney carried out additional research. The Stafford-Townsend Feud has the distinction of being probably Texas's longest running
