In this particular case, a traveling Indian Shaman and his wife going from town to town selling tonics, good luck charms, herbs etc; stopped at the wrong town. They tortured the Indian Shaman and tortured his wife of mixed heritage. Before the Shaman died he put a "curse" on the town for what they did to them. It's the same attitudes toward the "tinkers/gypsies" who roamed the west selling herbs, teas, tonics and sharpening knives, love potions, fortune telling any thing to make an honest nickel.
This particular town was turned into town of the walking dead. What a hot mess, a few innocent town's people plus the Reverend tried to save themselves, but in the end only the Reverend made it out. He burned the town to a mass of smoldering ashes, mercifully burning the corrupt souls...hopefully🙏
I liked "Dead in the West" very much. It reminded me of Saturday movies (something Lansdale mentions in his introduction). Cowboys, bad guys, lady in distress, the kid, zombies all mixed together in a rip-roaring funfest.
Reverend Zeb Mercer makes a sympathetic, warped protagonist, like a lot of Lansdale's leading men. Mud City was the perfect little east Texas town for zombies to attack.
If you remember the good old days of Western television shows and movies with nostalgia (and you like zombies), I think you will enjoy this novella of Lansdale's.
