Book Sources for Blood Meridian


"There is an awful lot of material about the southwest and I read over 300 volumes over a period of 3 or 4 years when I was working on Blood Meridian. The first person accounts were the ones that interested me............all of these books are packed away. I'll just jot down a few titles as they come to me...... The Texas Santa Fe Expedition - Kendall..... The Doniphan Expedition -Hughes....... Adventures in Apache Country... Browne...... On the Border with Crook.... Adventures in Mexico (a classic) .... The Border and the Buffalo - (cook)... Savage Scene- Mcgaw....Lt Emory's Notebooks.... Gregg's Commerce of the Prairies... Life Among the Apaches- Cremony... Bartlett's Account of the Boundary Expedition.... Wildlife in the Far West by? ... THere is an account of Glanton in a book called Led and Likker; another in Yuma Crossing..... If you want to read about the Judge, read Chamberlain's My Confession, but with a grain of salt." C. McCarthy to Tom Caskey

Hey Candy: Good stuff. Loved your Paglia essay on the Dead thread over at the Forum, and I got my idea of Mother She riding Suttree like a witch would ride a broom from it. LOL. Thanks for posting that over there, I loved it.
