"A miracle in prose, an American original." —New York Times Book Review

San Francisco Chronicle
An American classic to stand with the finest literary achievements of the century.
Scott Veale
He is perhaps the greatest writer since Melville on the subject of work....What would be mind-numbing description in less competent hands is here completely riveting.

Cormac McCarthy writes the West as raw and as true as possible. This trilogy is amazing for its combination of gorgeous lyricism and deafening realism.

I just purchased the border trilogy and am finishing the first story in the trilogy "all the pretty horses." This story is beautifully written and the characters are very emotionally compelling. I have enjoyed the setting of the story and the plot seems unique to me. McCarthy's style of writing is so vivid I am easily transported to Central Mexico during the 1950's. I love some of the themes of the story including loss and love, cultural irreconciliation, and some mens' difficulty accepting changing times. This story will certainly take its place amongst American classics. I can only hope that the next 2 stories in the triology are as magnificent as this one!
