Good Western Novels

 

A loyal reader of mine emailed me about some good Western novels to read.

Although I am a fan of the Traditional Western and like a lot of writers, cut my teeth on the likes of Louis LaMour, Larry McMurtry and Glendon Swarthout just to name a few, my entire ideal of the Western was turned on it’s head when I read Blood Meridian by Cormac McCarthy.

Since then I have gravitated more to certain styles of writing that capture the raw, gritty and realistic life of the old west instead of the tired, tropish romanticism so prevalent in traditional westerns.

One writer I really like for this style is James Carlos Blake.

Top 5:

  1. In the Rogue Blood

  2. The Pistoleer (Based on the Life of John Wesley Hardin)

  3. The Friends of Pancho Villa

  4. Wildwood Boys (Based on the Life of Bloody Bill Anderson)

  5. Country of the Bad Wolfe’s

The Camp of the Saints

I highly recommend all my readers download the free copy of this amazing novel and share it with people you care about.

It’s eerie how accurate this novel (written in 1973) would be in predicting how neo-liberalism and the “western liberal conscience” would aid in the overt extermination of all things white.

Irrresistible Revolution:  Marxism’s Goal of Conquest and the Unmaking of the American Military

by Matthew Lohmeier

 

Mr. Lohmeier does a phenomenal job of tracing Marxism from the influencers of Karl Marx to present day demonstrating in detail that what the US Military is experiencing is part and parcel of a plan to utterly destroy all service branches and then, following that, the US itself, by indoctrinating rank and file service members that we’re all ‘systemically racist’ and other divisive fallacies such as ‘extremism in the ranks’ bolstered the the tired canard of ‘white supremacy’ and privilege in the military.

I became aware of his book watching Tucker Carlson about a month or so ago, and noted he was an active duty US Air Force Lieutenant Colonel who’d been relieved of duty for writing and publishing the book.  He’s currently in a ‘window seat,’ doing nothing important at all, and is fighting for his career along with his country and honors his Oath to, ‘Defend and Support the Constitution against ALL enemies…’

I’ve not yet completed it, but it is a great, accurate, footnoted read about the development of Marxism built on the foundation of Marx’s devotion to Satan, in Marx’s own words.

If you’re looking for a good book, I highly recommend this one.

Transparency:  I do not know the man, nor do I get anything for this post.  I am, however, proud that he shares my service branch with me:  The United States Air Force.
