wherein we exercise our massive literary muscle

It's generally considered by the well-read kaptains of thee kollecktive that Cormac McCarthy's bona fide masterpiece is Blood Meridian. It is a breathtaking, violent and gorgeously drawn piece of American lit. Over at the Water Swatters thee Ulyssess Chamberlain Rockefeller recently found himself in the harsh territory described by this novel. His two (2!) posts are a wonderful glimpse into the places of Blood Meridian. This obviously took a lot of work, and thee angler would be well advised to pay it considerable notice.

It's my belief that the Judge is the reincarnation of Jack London's Wolf Larsen. Dicsuss.

The Water Swatters contend that the Judge is no less than Satan incarnate.

Wow T! this is one of my top 3 fav books. I would suggest Terry Johnson books as well .Not as bloody but great period pieces of the old West. I did a tour a few years back with him in Montana of a few of the Indian war sites including Little Big Horn.
