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.

Lonesome Dove embraces all the West- legend and fact, heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers. Set in the nineteenth century, it is the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana and much more. It is a drive that represents for everybody involved not only a daring, even a foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream- the attempt to carve out the last remaining wilderness a new life. “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)
