In a lovely and terrible landscape of natural beauty and impending loss we find John Grady; a young cowboy of the old school, trusted by men and horses, and a fragile young woman, whose salvation becomes his obsession . . . McCarthy makes the sweeping plains a miracle.
Like the Western settings he captures to perfection, his work is both heart-wrenchingly beautiful and uncompromisingly brutal.
The completed trilogy emerges as a landmark in American literature
This haunting, deeply felt novel completes one of the literary masterworks of the 1990s
