Customer Review

on 4 December 2013
Butcher's Crossing is a powerful novel that, using a buffalo hunt as a metaphor, masterfully explores a range of important themes, including man's relationship with nature, man's search for understanding the essence of his own humanity and the conquest of the Wild West as part of the American experience. The story is a tragedy, and it mainly takes place in harsh conditions deep in the wilderness, so it is by no means a "light" read. However, as in Williams's other two novels, the writing is excellent and evocative and the story moves along nicely. Overall, Butcher's Crossing is a superb work of literature which I feel belongs in the same discussion as other great American novels such as Moby Dick and The Grapes of Wrath.
