Publisher's Summary

The final book of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove tetralogy is an exhilarating tale of legend and heroism. Captain Woodrow Call, August McCrae's old partner, is now a bounty hunter hired to track down a brutal young Mexican bandit. Riding with Call are an Eastern city slicker, a witless deputy, and one of the last members of the Hat Creek outfit, Pea Eye Parker, now married to Lorena - once Gus McCrae's sweetheart. This long chase leads them across the last wild streches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier.

©2010 Larry McMurty (P)2010 Simon and Schuster Audio

What the Critics Say

"Streets of Laredo is a splendid addition to the literary portrait of McMurtry's native Texas and the West that he has been creating for three decades. It's also one of his most affectingly melancholy books.... The characters are as finely etched as any McMurtry has ever minted." (Newsweek)

"One of McMurtry's most powerful and moving achievements." (Los Angeles Times)

"A marvelous novel in its own right and in every way a worthy successor to Lonesome Dove." (Chicago Tribune)

    "McMurtry The Emotion Killer"

    Although I like McMurtry's books, this one just seemed to take the cake when I finished it tonight. It seems to me that Larry loves to introduce his characters into his stories, gets you to love them or hate them, and then kills them off slowly! I think he just likes to play with his "readers-listeners" emotions, similarly to some of his characters "killings". Why else would all the main characters be gone now, in the Lonesome Dove saga's, well......almost gone, only one's left are P-i, Lorena, and barely by a whisker, Call.

    "A poor attempt"

    To follow up Lonesome Dove would be quite the challenge and this has been a miserable attempt. I want my money back.

    "A Rewarding End"

    A rewarding end to the Lonesome Dove series! After being disappointed in Comanche Moon (the #2 book in the series), I was curious as to how Streets of Laredo would be received.

    I loved it! It worked at a great speed. Covering a lot of events, but not leaving out chunks of detail like I thought Comanche Moon did. Character development was good and the plot kept you guessing.

    Highly recommend reading the prologue as well. Wraps the story/series in a bow for you.

    "It's sure not Lonesome Dove..."

    Depressing, disjointed and drawn out. Maybe an abridged version would have been better, or a different narrator but the charm and humor of Lonesome Dove was totally missing.

    Story
    "Most Excellent"

    Like beauty, most artistic presentations are in the eye of the beholder. This is my second time through this book, the first was many years ago. I don't remember liking it as much the first time. That may be because my first trip through it, it may have been a casualty of circumstances. The main circumstance being, I listened to it after watching the miniseries. I didn't care much for the miniseries for various reason. Mainly because the Lonesome Dove miniseries towered so far above it.

    But this is a great book. Larry McMurtry is far and away my favorite writer of the western genre. The story is well conceived and told. I balked a little with the narrator because I recently listened to Lonesome Dove and Lee Horsley does such an excellent job. But Daniel Von Bargen was a great choice for this book and well deserving of a 5 star award.

    And PLEASE!!! Don't shy away from this book because you don't like Westerns. This is a great story, well told and beautifully performed.

    Story
    "Best of the 3 non Lonesome Dove Novels"

    Having just finished the three Lonesome Dove follow up audiobooks , I found Streets of Laredo to be a fitting end to the story. I was not sure about Laredo going in. Some reviewers found it dark. Without Gus McCrae, what point was there in going on?

    Well Woodrow seems to have felt the same way, but he uncomplainingly goes on. The flashbacks and recollections of Gus bring back his himor and brilliance. In Comanche Moon, Gus was portrayed as a a bit of a youthful clown and it was nice to get some brief remembrances of why he was so compelling.

    Here is the West after the conquering of the Comanche and the buffalo. Villains still abound. Lorena and Clara still barely tolerate the captain. It's a great story.

    "What a fitting conclusion!"

    Although not as stellar as Lonesome Dove as far as story or narrator, this was a fitting conclusion to the saga. I love the new characters, the pace, and the twists. I'm disappointed Lee Hornsley didn't narrate but the reading was alright.
