VOLUME THREE OF THE BORDER TRILOGY

In Cities of the Plain, two men marked by the boyhood adventures of All the Pretty Horses and he Crossing now stand together, between their vivid pasts and uncertain futures, to confront a country changing beyond recognition.
In the fall of 1952, John Grady Cole and Billy Parham are cowboys on a New Mexico ranch encroached upon from the north by the military. On the southern horizon are the mountains of Mexico, where one of the men is drawn again and again, in this story of friendships and passion, to a love as dangerous as it is inevitable.

'In a lovely and terrible landscape of natural beauty and impending loss we find John Grady, a young cowboy of the old school, trusted by men and horses, and a fragile young woman, whose salvation becomes his obsession...McCarthy makes the sweeping plains a miracle'
Scotsman

'Like the Western settings he captures to perfection, his work is both heart-wrenchingly beautiful and uncompromisingly brutal'
