A brilliant and haunting novel richly capable of standing on its own, Comanche Moon completes Larry McMurtry’s epic cycle of novels of the American West that began with the Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece, Lonesome Dove.

We join Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow F. Call as they are just beginning to deal with the perplexing tensions of adult life—Gus, and his great love, Clara Forsythe, Call and Maggie Tilton, the young whore who loves him—when they enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of Buffalo Hump, the great Comanche war chief; Kicking Wolf, the celebrated Comanche horse thief; and a deadly Mexican bandit king with a penchant for torture.

Comanche Moon joins the twenty-year time line between Dead Man’s Walk and Lonesome Dove, as we follow Gus, Call, and their comrades-in-arms—Deets, Jake Spoon, and Pea Eye Parker—in their bitter struggle to protect an advancing western frontier against the defiant Comanches, determined to defend their territory and way of life.

At once realistic and yet vividly imagined, Comanche Moon is a giant of an audiobook and the keystone to a mighty achievement of storytelling. An epic adventure full of heroism, tragedy, cruelty, courage, honor and betrayal, Comanche Moon is the culmination of Larry McMurtry’s peerless vision of the American West.

Quotes & Awards

  • “It is a fantastic read, in many ways the best and gutsiest of the series…Incredible beauty and lightning-quick violence are the bookends of his West, but it is the in-between moments of suffering and boredom where McMurtry shines. The suffering is poignant and heart-rending; the boredom tempered with doses of Augustus McCrae’s sharp humor. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself crying and laughing on the same page.”

    " I guess Comanche Moon wasn't THAT bad, but I was horribly disappointed because I love Lonesome Dove so much. The first half held my interest, but I struggled to finish (in fact, I took a break and read Catching Fire when I was about 2/3 through, which I never do). Gus and Call, two of my favorite literary characters of all time, seemed like 2-dimensional shells of themselves, and Clara and Maggie really added nothing. "

    " Totally fun to read but the weakest of the Lonesome Dove foursome. "

    " A prolific and talented author. "

    " There's a lot more aimless wandering in this one, both by the characters and the author. This mostly exists to get all the pieces on the board for Lonesome Dove. Not bad but the weakest of the bunch. "
