Cormac McCarthy (born Charles Joseph McCarthy, Jr., in 1933), is acknowledged by many as one of the greatest contemporary American writers. His first novel, "The Orchard Keeper", won a 1966 William Faulkner Foundation Award for notable first novel; "All the Pretty Horses" would win the National Book Award in 1992, and "No Country for Old Men", conceived as a screen play (and later turned into a novel) won four Academy Awards. He would eventually author twelve novels, three short stories, five screenplays and two plays.

The "Border Trilogy" begins with a quintessential coming-of-age story of two young cowboys. "All the Pretty Horses" won the U.S. National Book Award as well as the National Book Critics Circle Award. "The Crossing" is similar in that it, also, is a coming-of-age story, albeit with difference characters. McCarthy brought the two protagonists together later in their lives in this novel "Cities of the Plains", which easily stands alone as its own story.
