One of my favorite authors. I devoured all 843 pages of Lonesome Dove and never got bored once.
This is a drawing from Streets of Laredo. Where James Garner played Captain McCall. Actually a fairly good edited down version of a big book.
I loved Streets of Laredo too.
I've read all four of the Lonesome Dove series. Everyone was great in it's own way. The movie I had high hopes for was Comanche Moon. That was the biggest movie disappointment. Did they even do Dead Man's Walk? I'll check
Acually, I think I've seen Dead Man's Walk. I guess David Arquette as Gus McCray drove it from my memory.
Dead Man's Walk is on Netflx Instant. I put in in my queue and will check it out sometime.
I thought the last two books were of lesser quality, but enjoyable nonetheless. Kind of like Frazetta's lesser painting efforts. It was nicer when the prequel events were left in the past and only hinted at. If you do prequels that answer questions like that, you want those prequels to raise more questions about the characters' lives than they answer. There's great power in the unseen and unknown.
