Going around in a circle didn't result in anything. Starting at the bottom instead of the top didn't make sense out of the brands. Has anyone had any success putting them in some sensible order? It almost seems obvious that the brands stand for letters of the alphabet, but do they? Maybe they are not an alphabet.
    Not yet, but my Cowboy sense is telling me there is more than one layer here, so it may not be obvious as to the order. Perhaps another overlay is in the cards..

    Dont forget to read the story each time. There is always a nudge in the story.

    Hmmm....I wonder if the "nudge" that ALWAYS comes EACH TIME comes with each and every puzzle. And if that nudge is in the same chapter as the puzzle? Or could that nudge be somewhere else in the book?

    Why is this thread titled "CHAPTER 13 Pride" when all of the others don't have a chapter number designation?

    On page 35, those triangles are overlayed on top of the brand matrix. There are five of them. Could they be something as simple as puzzle pieces?

    Earlier in the story, the cowboy's PRIDE is hurt when he crashes his bike, I mean horse. Perhaps we are to reassemble the triangles, thus restoring his pride....

    Even though I wrote this, I always think of a certain fight scene in Pulp Fiction where Butch (BW) says something along the lines of "feel that?.... that's pride ^&%$*#$ with ya" in reference to a MW comment made earlier. This, of course, has nothing to do with solving this thing...except for the ^&%$*#$ with ya that a puzzle always does.

    I LOVE "Pulp Fiction"! It is one of my favorite movies! That and "The Godfather" are my top two faves. And speaking of movies, did anyone see "True Grit"? How was it? (I'm referring to the Coen Brothers' version.)

    I really loved it. I haven't read the original book, but I've heard it was more true to the book. I like the original one with John Wayne, too.

    When you say to read this "EACH TIME" are you refering to each chapter? Do you mean there is a nudge in each chapter?
