En El hijo, una novela de resonancias épicas y una historia de iniciación, Philipp Meyer explora la crueldad, el sacrificio y la ambición de un lugar y una época, el Lejano Oeste de Estados Unidos desde mediados del siglo xix hasta los años setenta del siglo pasado.

Eli McCullough es el primer varón nacido en la recién inaugurada República de Texas. Durante una fatídica noche de 1849, una banda de comanches asalta su hogar, asesinando brutalmente a su madre y su hermana y tomándolo a él como prisionero. Con apenas trece años pero armado de valor e inteligencia, se verá obligado a vivir en el seno de la tribu y a adaptarse a sus costumbres bajo un nuevo nombre y como hijo adoptivo del jefe indio. Cuando el hambre, las enfermedades y el avance del ejército americano acaban con los últimos poblados libres, Eli vuelve al mundo civilizado, donde acabará creando un imperio ganadero. Su hijo Peter cargará con el peso emocional de la campaña de su padre por el poder, mientras que Jeannie, su bisnieta, luchará para conservar el patrimonio de los McCullough en un mundo de hombres donde la ganadería ha dejado paso al petróleo.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Philipp Meyer, the acclaimed author of American Rust, returns with The Son: an epic of the American West and a multigenerational saga of power, blood, land, and oil that follows the rise of one unforgettable Texas family, from the Comanche raids of the 1800s to the to the oil booms of the 20th century.

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.
