"That brief moment between a culture's existence and extinction—this is the border that McCarthy's characters keep crossing and recrossing, and the one story, as he's forever writing, that contains all others. Throughout the trilogy, we keep encountering witnesses—former revolutionaries, priests, gypsies — in whose testimony alone human history survives? McCarthy testifies to the passing not only of individual cowboys but an entire way of life" (New York Times). Preceded by the signed limited first edition, published by Knopf, of 1000 copies.
A fine signed copy.
