About this deal

When he finally found a clearing, he wouldn't leave it, and Pickles Gap came into being, mainly attracting travelers like its founder, which is to say people too weak-willed to be able to negotiate a few hundred miles of mesquite thicket without losing their nerve. He didn't really care what the question was, and it made no great difference to him which side he was on.

If we look up the word ‘epic’ in the dictionary, it wouldn’t surprise me to find “Lonesome Dove”, and author Larry McMurtry mentioned. He'd rattle off five or six different questions and opinions, running them all together like so many unbranded cattle -- it made it hard to pick out one and think about it carefully and slowly, the only ways Pea Eye liked to think.I’m probably not fairly a suited reviewer with my own expectations, reading history/preferences, no experience of the specific genre to scale the work against nor, being British, do I have that personal sense of the historical setting.

After the Indians wipe out enough of them, you get your public outcry, and we go chouse the Indians out of the way. I really enjoyed the story but it all began to feel like a soap-opera with some contrived back stories and stereotyped characters. The sun spread reddish-gold light through the shining bushes, among which a few goats wandered, bleating.

This is without a doubt the best book I've read in years - a huge cast of characters that are all memorable in their own way, this book is just bursting with story and ideas.

Lippy, who has a droopy lip and a hole in his stomach, plays the "pian-er" and serves as comic relief in the bar. The two still follow the cattle drive north, and sleep in a tent some distance behind the other cowboys.It is never quite clear why they became friends (and it’s something that McMurtry has attempted, with limited success, to explain in the prequels). Lorena Wood – A beautiful young woman from Alabama, she was coerced into prostitution by a former lover, later washing up in Lonesome Dove, where she works as the town's only whore. As the cattle drive moves north through Texas, the Hat Creek company encounters dust storms, dangerous river crossings, and many other adventures.
