Staff Reviews


"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."

— Bosco

"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

Description


The Pulitzer Prize­–winning American classic of the American West that follows two aging Texas Rangers embarking on one last adventure. An epic of the frontier, Lonesome Dove is the grandest novel ever written about the last defiant wilderness of America.

Journey to the dusty little Texas town of Lonesome Dove and meet an unforgettable assortment of heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers. Richly authentic, beautifully written, always dramatic, Lonesome Dove is a book to make us laugh, weep, dream, and remember.
