This chapter explains the traces of Ashley Gang in the Bill Ashley Jungle. Trace impressions of the Ashley Gang continue to appear on the Everglades landscape. John Ashley and his brother Bill remained hidden in the southern swamps for several months. While there, the brothers hunted alligators and otters together and lived off wild birds and the occasional deer. These appearances have the power to reconfigure all kinds of territorial claims, and almost every aspect of the accounts of Ashley Gang is compelled by nature’s politics. The chapter also describes traces of unnaturally large snakes that appeared throughout the Everglades landscape.
