The Border Trilogy, including: All the Pretty Horses, The Crossing and Cities of the Plain

New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1992, 1994, 1998. First editions. A lovely, Near Fine or better set of McCarthy's Border Trilogy. All books appearing unread, with just trivial wear, in bright, clean dust jackets.

Considered a trilogy, although written and published over a span of six years. Detailing the rough, cowboy lifestyle of protagonists living near the US-Mexico border. Winner of the "National Book Award" and the basis for multiple film adaptations, McCarthy at his best. “[McCarthy] is the great pessimist of American literature, using his dervish sentences to illuminate a world in which almost everything (including punctuation) has already come to dust” (The Guardian).
