Very good book for the West genre during the late 1940's before the cowboy's role became a footnote to history.
Brad Pitt narrating and he is VERY good at this game.
Five stars from me!!

It is the fall of 1952, John Grady Cole and Billy Parham--nine years apart in age, yet with a kinship greater than perhaps they know--are cowboys on a New Mexico ranch encroached upon from the north, at Alamogordo, by the military. To the south, always on the horizon are the mountains of Mexico, looming over El Paso, Ciudad Juarez and all the cities of the plain. And there is a woman. Or perhaps, it is more an obsession with a woman. As we discovered in the previous two entries to this trilogy, "All The Pretty Horses" and "The Crossing".
following the characters of John Grady & Billy, the unexpected becomes the expected. Reading any of Cormac McCarthy's work, the reader is always taken on a rewarding journey. "Cities" is a fitting final installment.
