    The final book of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove tetralogy is an exhilarating tale of legend and heroism. Captain Woodrow Call, August McCrae's old partner, is now a bounty hunter hired to track down a brutal young Mexican bandit. Riding with Call are an Eastern city slicker, a witless deputy, and one of the last members of the Hat Creek outfit, Pea Eye Parker, now married to Lorena -- once Gus McCrae's sweetheart. This long chase leads them across the last wild streches of the West....

    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.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes i would. I believe anyone would enjoy either reading or listening (especially listening).


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story of each character & how they were blended together.


    What does Lee Horsley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This was a great narration as he gave each person their own special tone or sound.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    In my opinion, the best miniseries has already been made.


    Any additional comments?

    I had already read this book many years ago, but this listen was a real treat. I have also listened to Dead Man's Walk & Comanche Moon (both very good).I will now listen to Streets of Laredo to complete the four books.
