A Uniquely American Epic

W. K. Stratton

University Press of Kentucky

W. K. Stratton’s essay focuses on the dangerous milieu in South Texas during the period in which the action of The Wild Bunch takes place. The essay is filled with data about intimidating sheriffs, murderous Texas Rangers, notorious bandits, and desperados of all varieties, individuals as colorful and horrifying as the ragtag collection of misfits and killers who populate portions of Peckinpah’s film.

Keywords:   Texas–Mexico border, Texas Rangers, Chico Cano, Pancho Villa
