Publisher's Summary

A love story, an adventure, and an epic of the frontier, Larry McMurtry's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic, Lonesome Dove, is the grandest novel ever written about the last defiant wilderness of America.

Two retired Texas Rangers, Captains Woodrow Call and Augustus "Gus" McCrae, lead a cattle drive from the small town of Lonesome Dove to the unsettled Montana territories. On their grueling journey, they are joined by Joshua Deets, a Black scout and former Ranger, Jake Spoon, a fugitive, and Newt Dobbs, a 17-year-old boy who may have family ties to Call. Richly authentic, beautifully written, always dramatic, Lonesome Dove will make listeners laugh and weep, dream and remember.

This remastered audio edition is expertly read by actor Lee Horsley, best known for his starring role in the television series Matt Houston.

Best Western story ever.

I’m a senior and have always loved Westerns. I think this story epitomises the genre. Larry McMurtry has an amazing skill in his descriptive prose, evoking a wide range of emotions.
Lee Horsley is the perfect narrator for this epic story, bringing the accent needed to make the story so realistic. I am so glad I found this audiobook.
