By Larry McMurtry
The epic four-volume cycle that begun with Larry McMurty's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, Lonesome Dove, is done with this incredible and haunting novel - a capstone in a strong culture of storytelling.
Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow F. name, now of their center years, are only starting to care for the enigmas of the grownup center - Gus together with his nice love, Clara Forsythe; and get in touch with with Maggie Tilton, the younger whore who loves him. proud yet very diverse males, they enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of Buffalo Hump, the nice Comanche conflict leader; Kicking Wolf, the prestigious Comanche horse thief; and a perilous Mexican bandit king with a penchant for torture.
Comanche Moon joins the twenty-year time line among lifeless Man's stroll and Lonesome Dove, following cherished heroes Gus and make contact with and their comrades-in-arms - Deets, Jake Spoon, and Pea Eye Parker - of their sour fight to guard an advancing Western frontier opposed to the defiant Comanches, courageously made up our minds to guard their territory and their lifestyle.
right now vividly imagined and unflinchingly reasonable, Comanche Moon is a sweeping, heroic event jam-packed with tragedy, cruelty, braveness, honor and betrayal - and the fruits of Larry McMurty's peerless imaginative and prescient of the yankee West.
