“Reunion” is the story of one man’s journey to discover his family heritage in the shadow of America’s most famous feud. The American saga of the Hatfield-McCoy feud continues to intrigue people fascinated by even the smallest details of the story. People are drawn to the tale of two families caught up in a tragic vendetta in the rugged Appalachian Mountains of Kentucky and West Virginia. But this is not a book about the feud. Until the author was thirty-five years old, he did not know he was related to the clan. This is a book about discovery. It is the story of enduring challenges, surprising revelations and new-found family. It is a personal journey to connect with the past and understand its relationship to the future. It is the story of family members, past and present, whose choices, decisions and actions, both good and bad, have directly affected and shaped the lives of generations to come. Ron McCoy is the great-great-great-grandson of Randolph McCoy, patriarch of the family at the time of the feud. His improbable discovery of his family heritage led to his involvement in seminal events that added new chapters to its history. He helped organize the first national reunion of the Hatfields and McCoys in 2000. In 2003, he helped shepherd the historic Hatfield McCoy truce signing, an event carried live on national television.
