the last book I ever read (Gore Vidal's Burr, excerpt sixteen)

from Burr: A Novel by Gore Vidal:

I have never in my life seen so much rain as fell that February in the endless Mississippi forest. Our clothes were never dry. Even when the rain for a moment stopped, we managed to get wet again as we forded swollen, muddy streams in which we soon grew accustomed to the snakes that swam alongside us like so many sticks of wood come slimily alive.
