The border trilogy - Cormac McCarthy

You might not know Cormac McCarthy but you probably know some of his stories. Famous movies have been made based on some of his novels: “No country for old men”, “The road” and “All the pretty horses”.
The last one is part of the trilogy I’m talking about here. The other two books of the series are “The crossing” and “Cities of the plain”.
The stories are all based across the border between the US and Mexico. Parts of the dialogs are in Spanish. The stories are set between the 40s and the 50s of the twentieth century and some of the characters are old enough to remember the Mexican revolution.
