Item Details

An epic novel of the violence and depravity that attended America's westward expansion, Blood Meridian brilliantly subverts the conventions of the Western novel and the mythology of the "wild west." Based on historical events that took place on the Texas-Mexico border in the 1850s, it traces the fortunes of the Kid, a fourteen-year-old Tennesseean who stumbles into the nightmarish world where Indians are being murdered and the market for their scalps is thriving.

The author's prose is near poetical and flows very well. The description of the settings is excellent. The novel contains graphic violence so it you cannot handle that then don't read the novel.Otherwise this book is well worth reading.
