在十九世紀的美國德州,一群印第安人將年僅十三歲的伊利.麥卡洛(Eli McCullough)的家人屠殺殆盡後,將他作為俘虜撫養成人。年紀輕輕就嘗盡苦頭的他,被迫在陌生的世界裡生存,學習印地安人的語言與生活方式,並取了新名字,以印第安人族長之子的身份,與其他印地安人與白人打一場場戰役,他的忠誠、復仇的決心與身份認同都逐漸模糊,他也變得益發殘酷無情、工於心計……伊利既不是白人也不是印地安人,他必須在自己無法歸屬的世界裡,創造一方容身之地。

本書藉由麥可洛家族的三位成員角度敘述:現為百歲人瑞的伊利回憶過去的人生、兒子描繪從追求權力的父親身上背負的情感代價、現為麥可洛家族石油帝國掌權人的曾孫女,訴說如何在男人的世界裡奮鬥。伊利以野心為名犧牲愛與榮譽,最終建立強大的石油帝國,麥可洛家族因而成為德州最有權勢的家族,但後代也終將面對隨之而來的後果……

Soon to be a TV Series on AMC starring Pierce Brosnan and co-written by Philipp Meyer.

Now in paperback, the critically acclaimed, New York Times bestselling epic, a saga of land, blood, and power that follows the rise of one unforgettable Texas family from the Comanche raids of the 1800s to the oil booms of the 20th century.

Part epic of Texas, part classic coming-of-age story, part unflinching examination of the bloody price of power, The Son is a gripping and utterly transporting novel that maps the legacy of violence in the American west with rare emotional acuity, even as it presents an intimate portrait of one family across two centuries.

Eli McCullough is just twelve-years-old when a marauding band of Comanche storm his Texas homestead and brutally murder his mother and sister, taking him as a captive. Despite their torture and cruelty, Eli--against all odds--adapts to life with the Comanche, learning their ways, their language, taking on a new name, finding a place as the adopted son of the chief of the band, and fighting their wars against not only other Indians, but white men, too-complicating his sense of loyalty, his promised vengeance, and his very understanding of self. But when disease, starvation, and westward expansion finally decimate the Comanche, Eli is left alone in a world in which he belongs nowhere, neither white nor Indian, civilized or fully wild.

Deftly interweaving Eli’s story with those of his son, Peter, and his great-granddaughter, JA, The Son deftly explores the legacy of Eli’s ruthlessness, his drive to power, and his life-long status as an outsider, even as the McCullough family rises to become one of the richest in Texas, a ranching-and-oil dynasty of unsurpassed wealth and privilege.

Harrowing, panoramic, and deeply evocative, The Son is a fully realized masterwork in the greatest tradition of the American canon-an unforgettable novel that combines the narrative prowess of Larry McMurtry with the knife edge sharpness of Cormac McCarthy.
