As with McCarthy's other novels, adventure is the main achievement of this story, which unfolds in a harsh American wilderness. The protagonists are a man and his young son, who are alone in that cruel, merciless environment. It is a tale at once of brutality and filial love, in which both characters only have one another and the ever-enduring hope for survival and better times.
