VOLUME ONE OF THE BORDER TRILOGY

John Grady Cole is the last bewildered survivor of long generations of Texas ranchers. Finding himself cut off from the only life he has ever wanted, he sets out for Mexico with his friend Lacey Rawlins. Befriending a third boy on the way, they find a country beyond their imagining: barren and beautiful, rugged yet cruelly civilized; a place where dreams are paid for in blood.

All The Pretty Horses is an acknowledged masterpiece and a grand love story: a novel about childhood passing, along with innocence and a vanished American age. Steeped in the wisdom that comes only from loss, it is a magnificent parable of responsibility, revenge and survival.

'A darkly shining work . . . executed with consummate skill and much subtlety - the effect is magnificent' John Banville, Observer

'A uniquely brilliant book . . . told in language as subtly beautiful as its desert setting. One of the most important pieces of American writing of our time' Stephen Amidon, Sunday Times

Set in West Texas in the years following World War II. A grandfather dies, parents flounder in their own worries and desires and the boy, John Grady Cole, is cut off from the only life - ranching - he ever wanted. So, with his friend Lacy, he decides to go to Mexico.
