Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
"When Augustus came out on the porch the blue pigs were eating a rattlesnake - not a very big one."

Not much action, but certainly ominous! What are blue pigs?

this is one of my favorite books, which is a bit odd,considering I don't read many westerns. I never knew what a blue pig was, but I assumed it was just a type with a greyish cast to the coat. I liked how in the book, Augustus had a real fondness for the pigs.
