Yes, I know there is a movie which by the way I have not seen. But it will never compare to the level of detail you get by reading the novel. I surely never expected to find this level of description in a modern western novel. All the Pretty Horses is part of the Border Trilogy series. Awarded author Cormac McCarthy tells the story of John Grady Cole, a Texas teenage rancher who’s forced to venture in to Mexico due to his mother’s sale of her ranch. It is there in nothern Mexico that he gets to live the life of a rancher he expected to have in Texas. But that’s not the only thing he finds.
