A Uniquely American Epic

Kathryn Jones

University Press of Kentucky

Kathryn Jones’s essay deals with the region in Texas known as the Nueces Strip, whose desert landscape and topography form much of the backdrop in The Wild Bunch. By detailing fascinating historical information about the area, its people, and events that took place there, Jones provides a unique insight into the land and its people that highlights an oft-overlooked aspect of the film.
