NATIONAL BESTSELLER • The second volume of the award-winning Border Trilogy—From the bestselling author of The Passenger and the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel The Road—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.
Look for Cormac McCarthy's latest bestselling novels, The Passenger and Stella Maris.
I read it to the point where to pregnant wolf was tied to a past and then had dogs released to tear it apart. I do not want to know how this book ends. Whatever darkness in Cormac McCarthy’s mind that generates this kind of savagery is a place I never care to enter into again. Sickening-almost pornographic in its depiction of human savagery. And I actually liked the first volume of the trilogy…
An awful book
