The Crossing

Category: Western

Author: Cormac McCarthy

Summary: This volume opens with a teenager's decision to slip away from his family's ranch into Mexico. In this case, the boy is Billy Parham, and the catalyst for his trip is a wolf he and his father have trapped, but that Billy finds himself unwilling to shoot. His plan is to set the animal loose down south instead. Billy's trek inevitably becomes more ominous than sweet. Billy eventually returns to his ranch. Then, finding himself and his world changed, he returns to Mexico with his younger brother.
