Bloody Harlan 6 - of bloody conflict will have been liminated...
of bloody conflict will have been liminated though sporadic individual individual violence is to be expected n a "frontier" community in which men feel "undressed" without a, gun nd "feudin'" is still a common >ccurrence. Still a Frontier Because Harlan county, Ky., is in he east, few people realize that it s still a "frontier" community. It is only 30 years since the first ailroad train puffed its way hrough the green hills to the ource of the Cumberland river, nd the real development of the larlan coal field is only 20 years Id. If it is crude and violent, ; is the crudeness and violence of ae frontier. 1
