Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A love story and an epic of the frontier, Lonesome Dove is the grandest novel ever written about the last, defiant wilderness of America. Richly authentic, beautifully written, Lonesome Dove is a book to make readers laugh, weep, dream and remember. Now a blockbuster television event.


Review:

"You can easily believe that this is how it really was to be there, to live, to suffer and rejoice, then and there. And thus, the reader is most subtly led to see where the literary conventions of the Western came from, how they came to be in the first place, and which are true and which are false."

George Garrett, Chicago Tribune Books

Review:

"Everything about the book feels true; being anti-mythic is a great aid to accuracy about the lonely, ignorant, violent West....All of Mr. McMurtry's antimythic groundwork--his refusal to glorify the West--works to reinforce the strength of the traditionally mythic parts of 'Lonesome Dove', by making it far more credible than the old familiar horse operas. These are real people, and they are still larger than life."

Nicholas Lehmann, New York Times Book Review
