The West Bluff grabs the reader from the beginning with plausible plot twists and realistic characters who live in harmony with the swamplands. The author succeeds in describing poignantly the challenges that catastrophic events as well as the passage of time have on the life of the story’s central character. I lived in South Louisiana for many years and have now moved away. Jon Bunn brought me back!
—Melva Haggar Dye, author of the novel, All That Remains
The West Bluff is a rousing combination of harrowing adventure and bayou folklore that rings with authenticity. If Hemingway had spent his youth in the treacherous backwaters of East Texas, he would have written this book. Bunn’s characters live a rough and tumble lifestyle that has all but disappeared from the American experience. What cowboys were to the Wild West, the men of The West Bluff are to the East Texas swamps. —Becky Wooley, author of the Grit and Grace clerical crime series
There’s a sweetness to The West Bluff—not syrupy sweetness—and it has at its heart Cajun history and culture in the years after World War II. It’s kind of a man’s book, but I liked it.
—Laura Lynn Leffers, author of Dance on the Water, Portrait of a Ghost
What really struck me about the book it is that the descriptions are sooo real, you feel like you are really right there as it is happening.

It is a good character study and highlights a neat local area that should spark some local interest.

Finished [Jon’s] book. Liked it. In fact at times I couldn’t put it down. My great grandfather owned Albert’s next door to Farmer’s Mercantile. Collier came about because [the teacher] misspelled his name from Cailler as Collier. It just stuck. The rest were Colliers.
