Summary
  • All the pretty horses: The story of John Grady Cole, who at 16 finds himself at the dying end of a long line of Texas ranchers, cut off from the only life he has ever imagined for himself. To escape a society moving all the wrong directions, Cole and two companions decide to seek their fortune in Mexico. But what begins as an idyllic adventure leads to a place where dreams are paid for in blood
  • Crossing: "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""--Amazon.com
  • Cities of the plain: While working on a remote ranch in New Mexico, Grady falls in love with a Mexican prostitute. He embarks on a dangerous quest of the heart when he attempts to rescue her from her owner. His friend Billy tries to protect him, but it soon demands sacrifices greater than either can control
