Synopsis

  • Blood Meridian is the story of the Kid and his escapades with the notorious Glanton gang, a rogue group of lawless men hunting for Indian scalps along the Texas/Mexico border in the late 1840s (some of its happenings are based on historical facts, but most is fiction). It also centers around a malicious erudite, known as The Judge (and occasionally Holden) and various other members of the Glanton gang. The story is riddled with copious amounts of blood and violence and thusly paints a grim, yet realistic portrait of early American expansion and depravity.
