"It’s a Texas book for the Texas heat. It’s a grand adventure. My
favorite western. It’s beautiful. It’s tragic and it’s epic in scope.
It’s the holy grail of Texas tales, steeped in Lone Star mythos.
Goodnight and Loving would be proud to know what they had spawned."
"Because Texas. That's why. One of the greatest friendships in all of literary history is laid out in perfection. We are loved as we accept those we love for who they really truly are. Beautiful."— Bosco
“If you read only one western novel in your life, read Lonesome Dove.”—USA Today
“Everything about Lonesome Dove feels true . . . These are real people, and they are still larger than life.”—Nicholas Lemann, The New York Times Book Review
“Lonesome Dove is Larry McMurtry’s loftiest novel."—Los Angeles Times
"A marvelous novel . . . moves with joyous energy . . . amply imagined and crisply, lovingly written. I haven't enjoyed a book more this year . . . a joyous epic."--Newsweek
"The finest novel that McMurtry has yet accomplished . . . Lonesome Dove has all the action anyone could possibly imagine . . . [and] both in general and in details, the authority of exact authenticity . . . superb."--Chicago Tribune
