    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.

    Story

    cant beat a story about friendship and hardship that takes you from the south to the north and back down again. Gus and Call are the truth in the saying a grape changes color when it sees another grape.

    Boone's Lick is high adventure, a perfect Western tale and a moving love story - it is vintage Larry McMurtry, combining his brilliant character portraits, his unerring sense of the West and his unrivalled eye for the telling detail.

    National best-selling author and New Mexico native Michael McGarrity takes listeners to the wild territory of the late 19th-century American Southwest for this epic tale. After the deaths of his wife and brother, John Kerney gives up his West Texas ranch and heads south in search of a new home. Soon Kerney is offered work trailing cattle to the New Mexico Territory - a job that will forever change his life.

    great story.. loved the western take on New Mexico.. the characters were well developed.. although Patrick is a complete regret on the gift God gives of life.. at times he was hard to take.. CJ was a hero and Emma was taken for granted.. Cal was the ranch and this book is worth the credit.

    The year is 1878, peak of the Texas cattle trade. The place is Dodge City, Kansas, a saloon-filled cow town jammed with liquored-up adolescent cowboys and young Irish hookers. Violence is random and routine, but when the burned body of a mixed-blood boy named Johnnie Sanders is discovered, his death shocks a part-time policeman named Wyatt Earp. And it is a matter of strangely personal importance to Doc Holliday, the frail 26-year-old dentist who has just opened an office at No. 24, Dodge House.

    The incomparable master of the legal thriller takes us deeper into the labyrinth that is the American justice system, always drawing us in with an irresistible hook, pulling the thread of tension tighter and tighter, and then knocking us out with a conclusion that's never "by the book". Maybe that's why, after more than 20 years of consecutive number-one New York Times best sellers, a new novel by America's favorite storyteller is still a major publishing event.
