Of the Border Trilogy, this was the most poignantly beautiful. Stunning imagery and character development frame this tome into one of the best novels of our time.

Perfect for a fan of any western, this book is a delight and yet a treachery to get through. The story is heart-wrenching and unforgettable…

Keep that Spanish-English dictionary close by!

As always, Cormac McCarthy delivers an incredible book in The Crossing. It's intense, full of soul and darkness, but comforting in a way. I'll be reading this one again and again.

Book of the decade - I avoided Cormac McCarthy because of "All the Pretty Horses" until I stumbled onto this book. My mistake. This book is incredible.

"Review" by , "This is a novel so exuberant in its prose, so offbeat in its setting and so mordant and profound....None of McCarthy's previous works...quite prepares the reader for [this] singular achievement..."
"Review" by , "[B]eautifully written....[N]ever has any Western been so well told."
"Review" by , "McCarthy puts most other American writers to shame. [His] work itself repays the tight focus of his attention with its finely wrought craftsmanship and its ferocious energy."
"Synopsis" by , In The Crossing, Cormac McCarthy fulfills the promise of All the Pretty Horses and at the same time give us a work that is darker and more visionary, a novel with the unstoppable momentum of a classic western and the elegaic power of a lost American myth.

In the late 1930s, sixteen-year-old Billy Parham captures a she-wolf that has been marauding his family's ranch.  But instead of killing it, he decides to take it back to the mountains of Mexico.  With that crossing, he begins an arduous and often dreamlike journey into a country where men meet ghosts and violence strikes as suddenly as heat-lightning--a world where there is no order "save that which death has put there."

An essential novel by any measure, The Crossing is luminous and appalling, a book that touches, stops, and starts the heart and mind at once.
