All the Pretty Horses (The Border Trilogy, #1) by Cormac McCarthy. This was the most important book of the early 1990's for me. I read it while I was working on a ranch in Wyoming. I wanted to be Cormac McCarthy. Which is why so many people now confuse us for each other. Kidding. But I still love him.
All the Pretty Horses is a western directed by Billy Bob Thornton and stars Matt Damon and Penelope Cruz. The plot is typical western and acting is average. The cinematography is decent but it's just an OK movie.
