Publisher's Summary

Lonesome Dove is a dusty little Texas town where heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers embody the spirit and defiance of the last wilderness. Larry McMurtry's American epic, set in the late 19th century, tells the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana, a drive that represents not only a daring foolhardy adventure, but a part of the American Dream for everyone involved. Lee Horsley, one of TV's most popular leading men and star of the Old West series Paradise, narrates this compelling saga.


Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: I first listened to Lonesome Dove with some trepidation. Could the likeable star of TV's Matt Houston really handle McMurtry's Pulitzer Prize-winning genre-transcending Western? I shouldn't have worried. Lee Horsley inhabits McMurtry's language and characters like a pair of trail-beaten boots, indulging the laid-back roughness of his own Texas roots to bring the tale of Gus McCrae, Woodrow Call, and the Hat Creek Outfit to spirited life. —Ed Walloga

Time well spent, I laughed and I cried

This is now my favourite audiobook, its laugh out loud funny and at times has you in tears. Its a long one but that is part of the guy, you have such a connection to the characters that feel like you've lived with them.
