Blood River Rising: The Thompson-Crismon Feud of the 1920s

Part historiography, part memoir and part murder investigation, Victoria Pope Hubbell’s Blood River Rising unpacks a blood feud in rural Missouri — a clash fueled in part by a chapter of the Ku Klux Klan. The clash left two people dead in 1924, but Hubbell tells a story wider than the feud and the time period, foreshadowing fraught race relations and the lingering influence of the KKK. It is, readers said, "a wonderful, gripping and very American story," and Hubbell’s methods and writing are "a credible way to tell a complicated story, where memories fail and time covers the truth.”
