    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.<

    Story

    Lonesome Dove was so good that I immediately wanted to start the series from the chronological beginning. I was sad to see that there was a different narrator for each book in the series, but I figured that if they were all by the same author, they would all be as good. Now I am not sure I want to finish the series. The narration was totally enjoyable (not quite as good as the reader for Lonesome Dove), but the story was weak. I understand that the two main characters that are so easy to enjoy Lonesome Dove are supposed to be very young men and maybe not quite as nuanced in this book, but they just weren't very interesting here. The humor of Lonesome Dove is absent. Also, Dead Man's Walk is very short (14 hours, I think, compared to the 30 or 40 of Lonesome Dove), which I suppose was merciful.
