"Where Monsters do Live"

Thought this description of a wild band of horsemen in Cormac McCarthy's Blood Meridian sounded a bit like the Society of Jesus:
For although each man among them was discrete unto himself, conjoined they made a thing that had not been before and in that communal soul were wastes hardly reckonable more than those whited regions on old maps where monsters do live and where there is nothing other of the known world save conjectural winds.
Nathan O'Halloran, SJ
