Description

From the author of The Last Picture Show and Texasville – here is Larry McMurtry’s Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece. A powerful, triumphant portrayal of the American West as it really was.

It begins in the office of The Hat Creek Cattle Company of the Rio Grande.
It ends as a journey into the heart of every adventurer who ever lived . . .

More than a love story, more than an adventure, Lonesome Dove is an epic: a monumental novel which embraces the spirit of the last defiant wilderness of America.

Legend and fact, heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers – Lonesome Dove is the central, enduring American experience dramatically recreated in a magnificent story of heroism and love; of honour, loyalty and betrayal.

This is the third novel in the Lonesome Dove quartet, following on from Comanche Moon and prequels Streets of Laredo.
