The Border Trilogy Summary

The Border Trilogy: Picador Classic by Cormac McCarthy

With an introduction by novelist Rachel Kushner

In the vanishing world of the Old West, two cowboys begin an epic adventure, and their own coming-of-age stories. In All the Pretty Horses, John Grady Cole's search for a future takes him across the Mexican border to a job as a ranch hand and an ill-fated romance. The Crossing is the story of sixteen-year-old Billy Parham, who sets off on a perilous journey across the mountains of Mexico, accompanied only by a lone wolf. Eventually the two come together in Cities of the Plain, in a stunning tale of loyalty and love.

A true classic of American literature, The Border Trilogy is Cormac McCarthy's award-winning requiem for the American frontier. Beautiful and brutal, filled equally with sorrow and humour, it is a powerful story of two friends growing up in a world where blood and violence are conditions of life.

The Border Trilogy Reviews

One of the greatest American novels of this or any time * Guardian *
A book of remarkable beauty and strength, the work of a master in perfect command of his medium * Washington Post *
The prose is clean and hard as pebbles . . . The great news is that All the Pretty Horses is only part one of the trilogy, and so, conceivably, only a third as good as it's going to get * Independent on Sunday *
A uniquely brilliant book . . . told in language as subtly beautiful as its desert setting . . . One of the most important pieces of American writing of our time * Sunday Times *
In a single stride it takes McCarthy to the forefront of contemporary American fiction. All the Pretty Horses is indisputably a masterpiece * Financial Times *
The finest action writer since Hemingway . . . a darkly shining work . . . immensely entertaining . . . executed with consummate skill and much subtlety - the effect is magnificent * Observer *
A masterpiece * Time Out *
Its elegaic rhythm captures the bandlands of Texas and northern Mexico with a passion most writers either couldn't muster or wouldnt' dare * Boston Globe *
A landmark in American literature * Guardian *
In these three fierce, desolate, beautiful novels, McCarthy has created a masterpiece * Sunday Times *
