Journal Entry 1 by SandyPA from Downingtown, Pennsylvania USA on Saturday, April 9, 2022
Found at Friends of Downingtown Library Book Sale for my quest to read Boxall’s 1001 Books.

Update June, 2022:
“What he loved in horses was what he loved in men, the blood and the heat of the blood that ran them…”

The story of 16 year old John Brady Cole, who leaves his hometown (San Angelo, TX) with his friend, Lacey Rawlins. They travel on horseback south into Mexico, where they encounter 14 year old sharpshooter, Jimmy Blevins and adventures follow. Cormac McCarthy is a master at character building, descriptive terrain and incredible prose so detailed at times, I want to stop reading. Instead, I slow down and come out feeling I am there, if that makes sense. This book, like his others I’ve read, has a way of staying with you long after you close it. There are times I wonder why I picked up another one of his books, and each time I finish, I’m glad I did. Thanks to the Boxall list, I experienced this one and have “The Crossing”, Book 2 in this trilogy (not on the list) on my TBR shelf.
