The road by Cormac McCarthy( Book )
4 editions published between 2009 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 5 libraries worldwide
In this postapocalyptic novel, a father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. They sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food--and each other. This book boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. It is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.--From publisher description

Esta es la historia de los hermanos Burns, forajidos irlandeses que asolan la región, y del capitán Stanley (Ray Winstone), un hombre que intenta mantener el orden y civilizar esa tierra agreste y salvaje. No es una historia de buenos y malos, sino de almas atrapadas en un lugar infernal, intentando sobrevivir en base a un código interno que, a la postre, es lo único que poseen. Una historia de inocencia rota, que alterna momentos de aterradora belleza con súbitos estallidos de crudísima violencia
