    In Dead Man's Walk, Gus and Call are not yet 20, young men coming of age in the days when Texas was still an independent republic. Enlisting as Texas Rangers under a land pirate who wants to seize Santa Fe from the Mexicans, Gus and Call experience their first great adventure in the barren great plains landscape, in which arbitrary violence is the rule -- whether from nature, or from the Indians whose territory they must cross in order to reach New Mexico.<

    "Really? EVERYONE?"
    Overall

    In short: Everyone dies a terrible death. Every person, every pet, every pack animal, every wild creature. Its over the top. I read previous reviews posts about how cruel the descriptions are and how difficult it is to listen to because of the violence and horrible endings everyone and everything faces in this book and I thought, well a lot of people are pansies. You have to have some terrible endings for a good drama, right? McMurtry takes it over the top in this book. Obviously, because this is the prequel to Lonesome dove (and others) Carl and McCray don't suffer terrible endings, but the device he uses to save them in the end is so far fetched I wish he had knocked them off too just to skip the embarrassment of such a ludicrous ending. Skip this one completely. I Loved Lonesome Dove, and ignored other reviews on this book because I wanted to spend more time hearing about the characters I met in Lonesome Dove. Now I wish I had taken heed.
