Publisher's Summary

A love story, an adventure, and an epic of the frontier, Larry McMurtry’s Pulitzer Prize- winning classic, Lonesome Dove, the third book in the Lonesome Dove tetralogy, is the grandest novel ever written about the last defiant wilderness of America. 

Journey to the dusty little Texas town of Lonesome Dove and meet an unforgettable assortment of heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers. Richly authentic, beautifully written, always dramatic, Lonesome Dove will make listeners laugh, weep, dream, and remember. 

This newly remastered audio edition is expertly read by actor Lee Horsley, best known for his starring roles in the television series Nero Wolfe, Matt Houston, and Paradise.

Lee Horsley is perfect!

Nothing else I have read has brought to life the Old West like McMurtry's Lonesome Dove! I could practically taste the steak and beans cooked on the campfire. I could see the herds of buffalo. I could feel the sting of the dust on my face. I live in Colorado and all around me is the evidence of life in this era so the book made my home more intriguing.

Each character was unique, likable and very real. I liked the people McMurtry introduced to me well enough that I plan to look for the second book in the series very soon.

Lee Horsley is incredible in this book. His voices for the various characters are very distinct and really brought the book to life. I never struggled to know who was speaking. I was enchanted by both the book and the narration
