About This Item

New York: Everyman's Library, 2008. First edition, later printing of McCarthy's classic trilogy. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Cormac McCarthy on the half-title page. Fine in a fine dust jacket. McCarthy's award-winning and best-selling trio of novels, The Border Trilogy, constitutes a genuine American epic. The young men in these novels come of age on Southwestern ranches in the 1930's, while across the border, Mexico beckons them with its desolate beauty and the cruel promise of a place where dreams are paid for in blood. The San Francisco Chronicle calls the trilogy "An American classic to stand with the finest literary achievements of the century" and the Chicago Tribune exclaimed, "Make a place on your bookshelf... If you love classic narrative, quest stories, adventure stories of high order transformed by one of the lapidary masters of contemporary American fiction, now is your hour of triumph."

Synopsis

Cormac McCarthy is the author of The Orchard Keeper , Outer Dark , Child of God , Suttree , and Blood Meridian . All the Pretty Horses , the first volume of The Border Trilogy , won the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
