A commentary on the mythology of the West including the relationship of good and evil. Slowed down by the considerable amount of Spanish in the dialogue that I needed to translate. Otherwise the novel is evocative with good pacing and interesting characterizations. Part two of the author's "Border Trilogy" but it is not a sequel and does not reading in order. Worth reading if you are interested.

Really liked All the Pretty Horses. The Crossing kept my interested until the Wolf died and then I thought it went a little stale. But that scene during the Dog Fights will stick in my mind forever. To be a boy/young man and make a choice like that shocked me.

The reading was slowed by having to consult a Castillian - English dictionary often on account of the amount of Castillian in it. Relatively little goes on, and the style makes it a bit trying at times. The lengthy monologue about a third of the way through is the highlight of the book.

Didn't finish. Good writing, but historical western didn't interest me.
