i'm curious if anyone knows the name of the walker who died and came back? i've never noticed this. is everyone sure it just wasn't a generic last name that might have belonged to two walkers? not that i disbelieve, because i've seen my share of mistakes in a lot of his works, mostly curious

It's in a thread somewhere around here. I don't have the time (or gumption again) to go chasing it down. Bev Vincent would probably know it off the top of his head.

This is in my top five. I have read and re-read it more times than I can count, but I don't recall any long walker who died and came back.

Cause you weren't looking, pilgrim. =D He's in there. Dies rather early on, if I remember correctly then just 'shows up' later. Nothing zombie-like or anything, just reappears.

Dang, how the heck could I have missed something like that?? I don't have a copy of the book, could you tell me who it was in a spoiler? Now I'm really curious to know!

He isn't a major character in the book.
