Publisher Comments:

Dead Man's Walk is the first, extraordinary book in the epic Lonesome Dove tetralogy, in which Larry McMurtry breathed new life into the vanished American West and created two of the most memorable heroes in contemporary fiction: Augustus McCrae and Woodrow Call.

As young Texas Rangers, Gus and Call have much to learn about survival in a land fraught with perils: not only the blazing heat and raging tornadoes, roiling rivers and merciless Indians but also the deadly whims of soldiers. On their first expeditions--led by incompetent officers and accompanied by the robust, dauntless whore known as the Great Western--they will face death at the hands of the cunning Comanche war chief Buffalo Hump and the silent Apache Gomez. They will be astonished by the Mexican army. And Gus will meet the love of his life.

About the Author

The winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction, among other awards, Larry Mcmurtry is the author of more than twenty novels, two collections of essays, and more than thirty screenplays. His reputation as a critically acclaimed author is unequaled. Mr. McMurtry lives in Texas.

It has been years since I read Lonesome Dove. I was browsing book shelves and found Dead Man's Walk, the first adventure of
Gus and Call. It was a stroke of luck because it was a deeply satisfying read. You live the trip across the barren West Texas plains with the Rangers as they battle the elements, starvation, one bad decision after another from their commander, and the fearsome Comanche war chief Buffalo Hump. A can't miss Western adventure from a master storyteller.
