With Cities of the Plain, McCarthy concluded his Border Trilogy. In this third work, McCarthy brings together his two protagonists in the earlier works, John Grady Cole and Billy Parham. John and Billy are in early adulthood as ranch hands in New Mexico in the 1950s. It is interesting to learn their fates, but this was my least favorite of the three books in the trilogy. Trying to read as many books as I can before the end of the year, thus the relatively short posts!
