Summary
Jesse Sutherlin has returned to Buffalo Mountain after making a name for himself during trench warfare in World War I and reaching the rank of officer. While on the mountain, his cousin and fellow soldier, Solomon McAdoo, who returned suffering from shell shock, is shot in the back while attending a family moonshine still. When Jesse learns of this, he knows violence is going to boil up. The west side of the mountain is McAdoo territory, and the east side, Lebrun territory. It will be like the West Virginia Hatfields and McCoys, with no winners, only more dead men. Jesse decides to head off the violence by investigating the crime. Over all this drama, and more deaths, looms the specter of the influenza epidemic that killed more people worldwide than died in the trenches, as well as the kind of poverty that has become a way of life for folks on the played-out farmland of this corner of Appalachia
