"Volume Three of the Border Trilogy"
In "Cities of the Plain," two men marked by the boyhood
adventures of "All the Pretty Horses" and "The 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
'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"
'This haunting, deeply felt novel completes one of the literary
masterworks of the 1990s' "Daily Telegraph"
'The completed trilogy emerges as a landmark in American
literature' "Guardian "
