Butcher's Crossing - John Edward Williams, Michelle Latiolais i was going to give this book a three because it's written very well, but i just couldn't bring myself to do it. the thing of it is, is that i really found it hard to bear. i normally like visceral storytelling, and certainly i get some very clear descriptions of the insides of buffalo, but i don't feel anything for these characters who go to hunt them. i can't even remember the kid's name, and his yearnings seemed empty even when i knew i was supposed to find something stirring in his gropings toward the west. i do remember vividly what he smelled like. but somehow that's just not enough. other people like this book much much more than i did and i understand why. yet what sticks out for me is the stuff that made me squeamish, and that's not what i was looking for here. :)
