Lonesome Dove Mass market paperbound - 1988

by Larry McMurtry


About this book

An epic story of two retired Texas Rangers on a cattle drive to Montana that is loosely basedon historic events from the 19th century, the original Lonesome Dove story was written to be a screenplay called "The Streets of Laredo.” The 1970s film was to be directed by Peter Bogdanovich, starring John Wayne, James Stewart, and Henry Fonda. However, due to casting issues, the movie was abandoned. Larry McMurtry later turned the Lonesome Dove script into a full-length Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The novel was later re-adapted to a four-part television miniseries starring Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, and Robert Urich.

From the publisher

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, and always dramatic, "Lonesome Dove" is a book to make us laugh, weep, dream, and remember.

First Edition Identification

Published by Simon and Schuster in 1985 in black cloth, the copyright page of first editions of Lonesome Dove have a complete number line beginning with "1.” The first issue jacket has no statement of the Pulitzer Prize, and the text has an error on page 621, line 16 reading "none" instead of "done." However, this specific error has been noted in printings as recent as the 25th and is not necessarily considered a first edition point of issue.
