McCarthy's masterpiece, which critics now acknowledge as one of the greatest American novels to date and likely to retain that status. Set in the American Southwest between 1849-1850 and based on historical events, McCarthy brings some unforgettable characters to life--including the landscape itself, spectacularly written. The Judge is a freak of pure evil, violence, and intelligence, whose discourses on the human condition the reader wishes to counter, but cannot.
