Description

Sixteen-year-old Billy and his brother Boyd are fascinated by an elusive wolf that has been marauding his family’s ranch. Billy captures the animal – but rather than kill it, sets out impulsively for the mountains of Mexico to return it to where it came from. Billy returns, finding himself and his world have irrevocably changed. His loss of innocence has come at a price, and once again the border beckons with its desolate beauty and cruel promise.

Professional reviews

"“The Crossing […] towers over most contemporary fiction. An American epic infused with a grand solemnity.” SUNDAY TIMES “McCarthy speaks to us in the thrilling, apocalyptic tones of an Old Testament prophet. We must treasure him.” SUNDAY TELEGRAPH “McCarthy writes prose as clean as a bullet cutting through the air and constructs tales as compelling as any you will read .” DAILY TELEGRAPH"
