Winner of the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award for Fiction
All the Pretty Horses—the first volume of the Border Trilogy—tells of young John Grady Cole, the last of a long line of Texas ranchers. Across the border Mexico beckons—beautiful and desolate, rugged and cruelly civilized. With two companions, he sets off on an idyllic, sometimes comic adventure, to a place where dreams are paid for in blood.
