Publisher's Summary

Comanche Moon completes Larry McMurtry's epic cycle of novels of the American West that began with the Pulitzer-Prize-winning masterpiece, Lonesome Dove.

We join Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow F. Call as they are just beginning to deal with the perplexing tensions of adult life -- Gus, and his great love, Clara Forsythe, Call and Maggie Tilton, the young whore who loves him -- when they enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of Buffalo Hump, the great Comanche war chief; Kicking Wolf, the celebrated Comanche horse thief; and a deadly Mexican bandit king with a penchant for torture.

Comanche Moon joins the 20-year time line between Dead Man's Walk and Lonesome Dove, as we follow Gus, Call and their comrades-in-arms -- Deets, Jake Spoon, and Pea Eye Parker -- in their bitter struggle to protect an advancing Western frontier against the defiant Comanches, determined to defend their territory and way of life.

At once realistic and yet vividly imagined, Comanche Moon is a giant of an audiobook and the keystone to a mighty achievement of storytelling. An epic adventure full of heroism, tragedy, cruelty, courage, honor and betrayal, Comanche Moon is the culmination of Larry McMurtry's peerless vision of the American West.

    "cool"

    I got this book to hear Frank Muller and knew nothing about Lonesome dove. My advice would be to start at "Dead Man's Walk", the prequel to this book. But this book did stand on it's own feet.

    "Poor narrator"

    I have listened to two other books in the series and loved them! I just started listening to this one and am enjoying the book, but the narrator is terrible. Will Patton and Lee Horsley were MUCH better. If I hadn't listened to the other books and loved the characters so much I probably wouldn't have continued to listen to this one.

    "Poor narrator"

    The book is a good follow up to Lonesome Dove...prequel....but the narrator was a big disappointment. Very poor western accent and hard to distinguish between characters.

    "The Old West Comes Alive"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this tale. It was, for me, an easier listen than Lonesome Dove. The characters came alive with the narration of Frank Muller. He was one of the best. Narration by Frank Muller is half the reason that I purchased this book. All of the Larry McMurtry westerns that I have listened to have been great. Frank's reading just made it better.

    "great book!"

    only thing that would made this series better is if all 4 books were read by the same voice!

    "Very Enjoyable"

    I really loved how the previous books were all interwoven so well, following the time between the beginning and Lonesome Dove. Mcmurtry is a master of character and setting descriptions. Now I'm going to miss Gus and Woodrow. The series is definitely worth the listen.

    "Another great McMurray book"

    This is the second book of his I have read. It's on to Lonesome Dove now. If they continue to be as good, I will read all of his books. I highly recommend it!

    "Vexing"
    What did you love best about Comanche Moon?

    Good story,love the characters

    Terrible choice for a narrator. Especially after Dead Man's Walk.


    What did you like best about this story?

    A return to Gus and Woodrow


    If you could take any character from Comanche Moon out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    Gus McCrae, he's a talker


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator was a poor choice for this book. I personally don' like Muller's narration. Would have been MUCH better if Will Patton had done all 4 books.Also the word Vexed or vexing was used almost every 10 pages. It kind of takes you out of the story when an author uses a word like this so often or maybe it was just the annoying way Frank Muller says it.

    "Nice leadup to lonesome dove"

    Nice look into the lives of many great characters. Pre lonesome dove history adds great context to the story.
