Read it already. What an awesome dude. The language in this pamphlet is clear and alive in a way that makes all other political tracts seem limp and mealy.... the best!

I learned from this book . . . no matter how tough you are, if you're alone in enemy territory you best hide cause you're nothing but a scared little punk kid.

pretty grim... so much blood. The preacher is one of the spookiest monsters i've ever come across. worse than a stephen king bad guy. the real old west and mexico must have been truly hardcore and brutal to endure

What a damn nightmare to be an alcoholic racist lunkhead stuck in small town Georgia. It'd be worse yet to have an encounter with two of them on a bad drunk during the annual rattlesnake round up. Scary!
