The Kid

The Kid
W. T. Cummings ~ Whittlesy House, 1960

This is the children’s book Cormac McCarthy would write if he wrote a picture book, complete with the dead grandfather, the horse, and the lone boy’s journey through the mountains. While it is never explicitly said that the grandfather is dead, just that “now the boy was alone,” it is about death and mourning.
