RE: T. R. C. Hutton Wins 2013 Weatherford Award for Bloody Breathitt book

Having just now, found this Review of the Breathitt History presented, it describes a considerable period in which both violence and political events shaped that area history. Possibly, the focus of this history tells much about the study and has led to a less inclusive result, since non-violent and non-political material has been excluded. Not yet having read the work, its focus is very much a matter of interest, that of Breathitt........a name with which would have liked to associate other conclusions about naming.
