When they hear rumors of freewheeling opportunities in the newly opened territory, they decide to break camp, pull up stakes, and head north. Their dusty trek is filled with troubles, , violence, and unfilled yearning." Booklist. *** "'Lonesome Dove' shows, early on, just about every symptom of American Epic except pretentiousness. McMurtry has laconic Texas talk and leathery, slim-hipped machismo down pat, and he's able to refresh heroic clichés with exact observations about cowboy prudery, ignorance and fear of losing face." Newsweek. *** Followed by 'Streets of Laredo' (1993) and Dead Man's Walk' (1995) *** Made into a Motion Picture directed by Simon Wincer, starring Robert Duvall, Tommy Lee Jones, Danny Glover, Diane Lane, Robert Urich, Rick Schroder, Anjelica Huston and more. Epic love story/ adventure."@en
