What's not to like!

Great book and story. The characters are as close to real as one can make them.

One of his best

Larry McMurty is an extremely talented and versatile author. This book is well written and one of the "can't put it down" type that keeps you engrossed to the end.
Lonesome Dove is my favorite of all the novels written by McMurty.

One of the finest westerns I've ever read. The way the charactors were fleshed out, the story locations, guarentee that it will be read and enjoyed over and over again.

Old Hat

Everyone knows a Plulitzer Prize is given to denote good books. In the case of this one it is well deserved IMHO. I could envision the childhood of my own great great grandfather in its pages. I was enchanted by the plot as well as the insights into the psyche of "manly men". You'll enjoy this book even if you have seen the mini-series.
