Larry McMurtry's Pulitzer Prize winning novel is a powerful, triumphant portrayal of the American West as it really was. From Texas to Montana, it follows cowboys on a grueling cattle drive through the wilderness. 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. From the author of The Last Picture Show and Texasville, and screenplay writer of Brokeback Mountain, this is the third novel in the McMurtry's Lonesome Dove quartet, following on from Comanche Moon and prequels Streets of Laredo. 'If you read only one Western novel in your life, read this one . . . no other has ever approached the accomplishment of Lonesome Dove' - USA Today
