Shadow Country Peter Matthiessen s New Rendering of the Watson Legend Edgar Artemas Watson 1855 1910For seventeen days I was held enthralled by Shadow Country Once I began it I was unable to stop Nothing could have pulled me away from itA New Rendering of the Watson Legend happens to be the subtitle of Peter Matthiessen s 2008 National Book Award winning novel The operative word in that subtitle is LegendA legend is a story founded in truth indigenous to the people residing in the region where the story originated Rooted in truth the uestion becomes where does the truth stop and the legend beginPeter Matthiessen devoted approximately thirty years of his life absorbed or as he says in his introduction to Shadow Country he has learned a lot about obsession having spent so much time in the mind of E J Watson For Matthiessen had previously written of Edgar Watson in a trilogy of novels Killing Mister Watson 1990 Lost Man s River 1997 and Bone by Bone 1999 Watson was born in 1855 in Clouds Creek South Carolina as Edgar Artemas Watson In later life he changed his name to Edward J Watson The J stood for Jack Matthiessen constructed his novel in daring fashion In Book One Edgar Watson is shot down by his neighbors on Chokoluskee Island Florida on October 24 1910 suspected of a growing number of murders over a period of time The uestion is obvious How did those who knew him come to these conclusions for as we begin this increasingly complex web there is no evidence but only suspicion Chokoluskee IslandMatthiesen s writing is brilliant not only in its structure but the dialogue of the natives of Chokoluskee Florida The language is reminiscent of a blend of the inhabitants of the novels of Erskine Caldwell and William Faulkner It is as easy to believe you are listening to conversations heard along a walk down Tobacco Road or around Frenchman s BendNot only is Matthiesen perfect in character dialog and plot he is a master of setting For when you enter Shadow Country Matthiessen has effectively taken you to a lost world relatively unblemished by man And he will develop the theme of man s callous domination over nature in revealing plans to develop the gulf coast of the Florida Peninsula as Flagler and others permanently changed the character of the State s Atlantic coast Here are vast rookeries of white plumed egrets with nights shattered by the scream of Florida black panthers Seemingly sodden logs transform into huge alligators and crocodiles In the vast mangrove tangles cotton mouths coral snakes and Florida Diamondbacks wait for the unwary traveler And it is man s nature to believe that he has the right to exterminate any species for profitBook One is filled with fifty one monologues of fourteen separate narrators They relate their memories of Watson and what they know of him It becomes readily apparent that knowledge is an illusive concept Among the many crimes laid at Watson s feet is the murder of Outlaw ueen Belle Starr while he was a fugitive in the Indian Territories Watson did not deny the story enhancing his reputation as a man not to be trifled withWatson has appeared as a figure in than one Florida history In The Everglades River of Grass by Marjory Stoneman Douglas we find Halfway up the empty Chatham River a circumspect man named Watson had built a respectable two story frame house high on an old sand and shell Indian mound that commands a great sweep of river east and west There was nothing to be seen but the fish jumping and the birds flying It had a porch and high bare rooms a rainwater cistern a plank dock for his boats He set out a cane patch horse bananas and the usual vegetables He planted palm trees along the river and two royal poinciana trees flamed against the gray house and dazzling blue sky Edgar Watson s home on Chatham BendNobody seems to know when Watson first came to Chatham River Nobody over there even now seems to want to say much about him But of all the men who lived silently along those coasts with the air of strange deeds behind them Watson s is the figure about which multiplying legends seem most to clusterHe was a Scotsman with red hair and fair skin and mild blue eyes He was uiet spoken and pleasant to people But people noticed one thing When he stopped to talk on a Fort Myers street he never turned his back on anybodyIt was said freely that he had killed people before he came to Florida that he killed Belle Starr and two people in northwest Florida That was nobody s business here from Fort Myers to Shark River From time to time he went up to Fort Myers or Marco in his boat and took down to work at that lonely place of his on Chatham River people variously described as a boy a rawboned woman two white men a Negro a Russian a Negro woman an old woman No one seems to know how many No one seemed to notice for a while that none of these people came backHe was of course a plume hunter and alligator skinner and he shared many feuds with the uick shooting men of the wildernessIn 1910 a man and his son sailing up the Chatham River saw something ueer floating by the bank It was the body of an old woman gutted but not gutted enough to sink The man said Let s get along to Watson s and tell him about it The son said Let s get back to Chokoloskee and talk to Old Man McKinney At Chokoloskee they found several men talking to a Negro in McKinney s store The story the Negro told was that he d worked for Watson a long time and seen him shoot a couple of men The Negro said he d buried a lot of people on his place or knocked them overboard when they asked him for their moneyWatson was away the Negro said His overseer named Cox killed another man and the old woman and forced the Negro to help him cut them open and throw them in the river He said he would kill him last but when the Negro got down on his knees and begged to be spared Cox said he would if he d promise to go down to Key West and get out of the country The Negro came up to Chokoloskee instead and told everythingA posse went down to Watson s place and found plenty of bones and skulls The overseer got away and has never been seen there sinceThe next day Watson came back in his boat from Marco and stopped at McKinney s store in Chokoloskee He came walking along the plank uiet and pleasant carrying his gun And here were all the men of Chokoloskee standing uietly around with their gunsMr McKinney walked up to Watson slowly and said Watson give me your gun Watson said I give my gun to no man and fired point blank at McKinney wounding him slightly As if it was the same shot every man standing there in that posse fired Watson fell dead Every man claimed he killed him and nobody ever knew because there were so many bullets in him However Watson s end appears in a different manner in The story of the Chokoloskee Bay country With the reminiscences of pioneer C S Ted Smallwood Copeland studies in Florida history by Charlton W Tebeau According to store owner Ted Smallwood the group of men who shot Watson was led by D D House and no one faced by Watson was wounded Matthiessen chose the Smallwood account for Watson s death Smallwood Grocery Chokoloskee FloridaBook II provides a distinctly different perspective in the narration of Lucius Watson the most loyal of Watson s children legitimate or illegitimate Lucius is also the most gentle of Watson s children Following his father s death Lucius sets out to vindicate his father s name and bring those to justice who murdered him compiling a list of the assassins Lucius having been made a Marine sniper in World War One loses his taste for revenge However the news that Lucius has prepared a death list is rampant in his father s former community Lucius risks his father s fate because of that list However he refuses to abandon his mission to find the truth behind the rumors that swirled around his fatherIn the end Lucius learns a truth horrible than that believed by the residents of Chokoluskee from his half brother Robert whom his father referred to only as Son Borne failing to acknowledge him by name Lucius mission had been to write a biography of his father On learning the truth he burns itBook III confirms Matthiessen s unconventional structure The narrator is Edgar Watson The voice is surprisingly formal and articulate Watson is a man politically astute and educated in the classics However this is no self serving refutation of the many accusations made against him Watson s long monologue is a confession of what he has done and what he hasn t He is no saint far from itInterestingly Watson recalls the Iliad before his final trip to Chokoluskee All of us must die Why make a fuss about it Achilles to HectorYou die in your own arms as the old people say Those old people the ancient Greeks would have said that wrapped around Watson s arms was the fabric of hubris Watson s GraveMy thanks to members of On the Southern Literary Trail who voted this as one of
