A love story, an adventure, and an epic of the frontier, Larry McMurtry’s Pulitzer Prize— winning classic, Lonesome Dove, the third book in the Lonesome Dove tetralogy, 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.

Das Buch ist nicht schlecht, aber ich würde es nur Leuten weiterempfehlen, die sich für Cowboys und/oder das Leben zur Zeit der Besiedelung des Westens in den USA interessieren. Ich habe es schon mit Interesse gelesen und mir haben besonders die realistischen Figuren gefallen, aber das Buch ist nicht kondensiert geschrieben, auch vermisst man einen Roten Faden oder eine Botschaft -- es wirkt wie eine Momentaufnahme (wobei der Moment die Dauer eines Jahres ist) im "normalen" Leben einiger Cowboys.
