Lonesome Dove is a dusty little Texas town where heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers embody the spirit and defiance of the last wilderness. Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved. Lee Horsley, one of TV's most popular leading men and star of the Old West series Paradise, narrates this compelling saga. Download and start listening now!

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carolyn | 2/5/2014

    " I think I enjoyed the movie better than the book. Then, while watching the movie, I realize its nothing like the book! Go figure! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leigh | 1/27/2014

    " I read this book so many times over my lifetime, it actually fell apart. The first time, I was 13. Over the last 20+ years, I still laugh, cry, and hurt with the beautiful characters of this gorgeous story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jean LaViolette Athey | 1/23/2014

    " My husband convinced me to read this book. I'm glad I did although I don't really like westerns. It did take a while for me to truly get into the book but I once I did, it was hard to put it down. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Felicia | 1/9/2014

    " I was definitely drawn into the story but wasn't satisfied with the ending. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Blair | 12/28/2013

    " As it said, written in script on the last page of the library book by a previous reader: "Best Western Story Ever Written." I wouldn't know, because I haven't read enough western stories. However, this movie was a great favorite in my family. We watched it so many times that both of my brothers have quoted it to me (unironically) in giving me life advice...It was a proud day for my dad. This is a beautiful story, and my eyes were full of tears on many occasions during this three weeks. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donika | 12/20/2013

    " This is the book that taught me I like Westerns. Might have skipped a lot of McCarthy without it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Steph Carter | 12/10/2013

    " Read this while travelling through the Texas Hill Country -- absolutely excellent in the setting. Helped me enjoy my trip even more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tammy | 12/10/2013

    " Great book! Much better than the movies. The inner thoughts of the characters are so much fun to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brenda | 11/17/2013

    " A great historical fiction. I felt as though I was in the wagon journeying across the dusty plains. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl | 9/26/2013

    " One of my all time favorite books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cassie Brown | 8/2/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jl | 4/11/2013

    " My favorite western, hands down. It's a phenomenal book, even if the thought of picking up a western makes you cringe. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April Farmer | 1/25/2013

    " I loved this book. Even though I wouldn't say I'm a big fan of westerns, this book was hard to put down. It's a wonderful story about friends, love, and loss, all at the same time exploring the western frontier. One of my favorite books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Eve Kochman | 1/4/2013

    " I enjoyed this book even though I would have to say I think it would appeal more to a male reader. Larry McMurtry is highly skilled at creating characters of extreme depth without belaboring the process. His characters are effortlessly three dimensional. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 C B | 8/10/2011

    " It is a very good story, but just is too slow for me. I can totally understand all the 5 star ratings but pace is what keeps me interested. If you are looking for a fast moving adventure this is not for you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 2/7/2011

    " I understand why this book won the Pullitzer. Amazing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ricci | 5/8/2010

    " A raw, gritty story about the wild west and cowboy life. This was an excellent book, I didn't realize that there were more books in the series. Can't wait to read them all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Megan | 1/23/2006

    " This book captures the heart and each character is beautifully portrayed. When I finished the book, I deeply missed reading about the adventures of Gus and Woodrow. A must-read book with plenty of comicality, action, drama, and romance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Young | 1/21/2006

    " One of my top three favorite books "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sam Sharp | 5/21/2005

    " Bloody incredible, pretty heartbreaking all the way through and the jump between this and LD#2 almost made me quit reading, such nice characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Davalos | 6/30/2003

    " Made me drink whiskey and cry. "

    " Westerns not my thing, but kept me reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura Huben | 4/11/2002

    " One of the best books I have ever read. You fall so deeply into the story that you find yourself dreaming of vast dusty plains and nights under the stars. "
