All the Pretty Horses, Cormac McCarthy (1992)

All the Pretty Horsess
“He lay there three days. He slept and he woke and slept again. Someone turned off the light and he woke in the dark. He called out but no one answered. He thought of his father in Goshee. He knew that terrible things had been done to him there. He lay in the dark thinking of all the things that he did not know about his father and he realized that the father he knew was all the father he would ever know. He would not think about Alejandra because he didn’t know what was coming or how bad it would be and he thought she was something he’d better save.  So he thought about horses and they were always the right thing to think about.”
