    somewhat vulgar expression, BLOOD AND THUNDER: An Epic of the American West, yields the same stuff, but with a waaaaay different presentation. In his powerful examination of politics, racism, religion, adventure and history, Hampton Sides weaves an intricate tale with Carson as the focal point.
