Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Lonesome Dove Larry McMurtry comes the second novel about love and loss on the great plains of Texas. From 1920’s ranching to range cowboys and WWII grief, McMurtry is the undisputed father of the Western literary epic.

Leaving Cheyenne traces the loves of three West Texas characters as they follow that sundown trail: Gideon Fry, the serious rancher; Johnny McCloud, the free-spirited cowhand; and Molly Taylor, the sensitive woman they both love and who bears them each a son. Told in alternating perspectives over sixty years, Leaving Cheyenne follows their dreams, secrets, and grief against a changing American landscape.

Tragic circumstances mark the trail, but fans of McMurtry’s distinctive style will cherish his unforgettable characters and pathos of the American West.

Synopsis:

Hailed as a "rarity...funny, wonderful, heartbreaking, exhilarating" (The New York Times Book Review), Leaving Cheyenne is about the forty-year friendship between two men and one woman.

In the sequel to the paperback reissue of Horseman, Pass By, Larry McMurtry has created a Cheyenne that is not on any map...but a part of life. Written with Larry McMurtry's distinctly generous vision, Leaving Cheyenne is a gem of American fiction.

Synopsis:

My foot's in the stirrup,

My pony won't stand;

Goodbye, old partner,

I'm leaving Cheyenne.

— Old cowboy song

Tragic circumstances mark the trail but McMurtry's style never turns melodramatic or sentimental.
