Believing her son to be alive, Rinthy undertakes a quest to find him, and Culla begins to roam the Appalachian countryside on a mysterious quest of his own. He is menaced by three strangers--symbols perhaps of Culla's guilt--who commit heinous crimes for which Culla is blamed. McCarthy's dark tale has been compared to the kind of harsh folk fables that have traditionally been part of mountain culture.Hide synopsis
