Blood Meridian, or the Evening Redness in the West

by Cormac McCarthy

This is his best book. And I was an English major in college so I was forced to read all kinds of books. What I find so gripping about it is I talked earlier about the darkness of the world. This is an historical novel based on the group called the Glanton Gang that were killing Indians and they ended up killing everybody. If you had black hair, your scalp was going to be taken.
