Contains All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing and Cities of the Plain.
A landmark of our literature and times, an epic that reaches from tales of the old west, a world now past, into the new millennium, the Border Trilogy tells of the passing of childhood, the loss of innocence, of love and dreams, of land and horses, and of the still point between vivid past and uncertain future.
From the ranches where John Grady Cole and Billy Parham grow up, the horizon is always filled with the mountains of Mexico, a temptation, an invitation, looming over all the cities of the plain. The boys are driven – by fear, by love, by revenge – to cross the border again and again, each crossing itself a rite of passage.

“McCarthy’s elegiac stories are perfectly matched with the laconically-beautiful delivery of film actor Brad Pitt.”
Glasgow Herald 31/12/98
“Crossing and recrossing the border between the workaday world and that which is hidden behind it – terrifying violence, political turmoil, sexual love – in these three fierce, desolate, beautiful novels, McCarthy has created a masterpiece, one that engages with the tremendous questions of life and death and has the weight to take them on.”
