Available together in one volume for the first time, the three novels of Cormac McCarthy’s award-winning and bestselling Border Trilogy constitute a genuine American epic.
Beginning with All the Pretty Horses and continuing through The Crossing and Cities of the Plain, McCarthy chronicles the lives of two young men coming of age in the Southwest and Mexico, poised on the edge of a world about to change forever. Hauntingly beautiful, filled with sorrow and humor, The Border Trilogy is a masterful elegy for the American frontier.
