Waterstones Says

An epic, Pulitzer winning story of the great American West and search for honour, heroism and love. Portraying the bravery, ambition, defiance and ruthlessness of the settlers in the great wilderness, McMurthy’s novel delicately balances myth and fact, making Lonesome Dove one of the finest literary Westerns.

It begins in the office of The Hat Creek Cattle Company of the Rio Grande. It ends as a journey into the heart of every adventurer who ever lived...

From the author of The Last Picture Show and Texasville - here is Larry McMurtry's Pulitzer Prize winning masterpiece. A powerful, triumphant portrayal of the American West as it really was.

More than a love story, more than an adventure, Lonesome Dove is an epic: a monumental novel which embraces the spirit of the last defiant wilderness of America.

Legend and fact, heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers - Lonesome Dove is the central, enduring American experience dramatically recreated in a magnificent story of heroism and love; of honour, loyalty and betrayal.
