The Tollivers and the Calhouns are always fussin’ ’an’ a-feudin’, which makes things difficult for Emmy Lou, a Tolliver, and Lee Roy, a Calhoun.  The story of the 200-year old battle even appears in a scandal sheet ’Strange But True.’ A couple of near-bankrupt New York publishing houses send agents to sign up the conflicting families.  It ain’t easy having to go to the town of Lonesome Polecat.
