This is Volume One of the Border Trilogy. John Grady Cole is the last bewildered survivor of long generations of Texas ranchers.
Finding himself cut off from the only life he has ever wanted, he sets out for Mexico with his friend Lacey Rawlins. Befriending a third boy on the way, they find a country beyond their imagining: barren and beautiful, rugged yet cruelly civilized; a place where dreams are paid for in blood. All the Pretty Horses is an acknowledged masterpiece and a grand love story: a novel about childhood passing, along with innocence and a vanished American age.
Steeped in the wisdom that comes only from loss, it is a magnificent parable of responsibility, revenge and survival. All the Pretty Horses is indisputably a masterpiece' - Financial Times.

They barely survive and try to figure out how to get out of prison; an inmate with special privileges, who seems to command the respect of the other inmates, takes an interest in their situation and suggests money might solve their problem. They decline this offer of protection, because they have no money and Rawlins is soon severely wounded by a knife-wielding inmate and is taken away; Grady is not sure if Rawlins has survived. Soon afterward, Grady is wounded while defending himself from a cuchillero and kills the man. After a long recovery from his near-fatal stabbing, Grady is released and finds Rawlins has also survived and been freed.
They discover that Alejandra's aunt has interceded to free them, but on the condition that Alejandra undertake never to see John Grady again. In the end, after a brief encounter, Alejandra decides she must keep her promise to her family and refuses John Grady's marriage proposal. John Grady, on his way back to Texas, kidnaps the captain at gunpoint, forces him to recover the horses and guns that were taken from him, Rawlins, and Blevins, and flees across the country. He is severely wounded in the escape and cauterizes a serious gunshot wound using his pistol barrel heated in a fire.
He considers killing the captain but encounters a group of Mexicans who call themselves "men of the country," who take the captain as a prisoner. John Grady eventually returns to Texas and spends months trying to find the owner of Blevins' horse.
All the Pretty Horses (The Border Trilogy, Book 1)
He gains legal possession of the horse in a court hearing where he recounts the entire story of his journey across the border, and the judge later tries to absolve Grady of his guilt both for killing the prisoner who attacked him and for being unable to prevent Blevins being murdered. John Grady briefly reunites with Rawlins to return his horse and learns that his own father has died something he has already intuited.
After watching the burial procession of one of his family's lifelong employees an elderly Mexican woman who had helped care for three generations of his family from their infancy , the last strong link to his family and his past, John Grady rides off into the West with Blevins's horse in tow. All the books of the "Border Trilogy" are written in an unconventional format which omits traditional Western punctuation such as quotation marks and makes use of polysyndetic syntax in a manner similar to that of Ernest Hemingway.
