The story is set in a Texan desert and revolves around cowboys , Indians and whores.You would think the characters will be so imaginary and may be dramatic as from a Tarantino movie ,and you will be wrong.As much as the characters are from the era of cowboys and rangers, they still reflect people we meet everyday.There is many side to the same story and the people involved.

Somewhere in a small town of Fort Smith , someone fires a bullet at a dentist, which was an accident nevertheless ,yet the butterfly effect starts and dominos keep falling thousands of miles away.

There is a cowboy who is still in love with a woman who he has not seen in last 15 years ,which makes him a natural philosopher .There is a retired ranger still trying to find the adventure after the war is long since over.He has fought many a fights in the wilderness, with the Indians and the horse-thieves ,yet too scared to face up to his own feelings about his son. A whore dreaming to try her luck to reach her destination, San Francisco.A cowboy desperately in love with the whore who does not and would not love him back ,ever. A weird cook who cooks anything but normal food and another one who is an ex-bandit running away from his wife.

The characters seem so unreal with today's times yet they are so real.There are People dying in most unfortunate circumstances ,yet people still moving on around to live another day.There is emotions ,lots of it.There is death ,too many to count.Yet it is not a depressing story.In fact, far from it.Give this book a go and you will be amazed at how much it is not just about the cowboys and the cattle. It is about people and life as we know it.At least i thought so.Give it a go and you will amazed. ( )

I loved playing Red Dead Redemption 2 and I looked online for western books that could continue to fill my desire for more epic western stories. This and Blood Meridian came up, I read the first couple pages of both books and went with Lonesome. Wow, never in a million years would anyone think to see me- a 20 something female who listens to metal music reading a western as big as a damn bible. I don’t think I’ve been this engaged in a book in awhile- I highly recommend it to anyone who played Red Dead Redemption and loved the story as much as I did. ( )

This is my favorite book by far. I've watched the TV mini-series many times. It really touches my heart. ( )

Didn't finish. Was rather uninspired with some details and did a bit more research and decided that my life would be a bit happier without finishing it. ( )

All of Mr. McMurtry's antimythic groundwork -his refusal to glorify the West - works to reinforce the strength of the traditionally mythic parts of ''Lonesome Dove,'' by making it far more credible than the old familiar horse operas. These are real people, and they are still larger than life. The aspects of cowboying that we have found stirring for so long are, inevitably, the aspects that are stirring when given full-dress treatment by a first-rate novelist. Toward the end, through a complicated series of plot twists, Mr. McMurtry tries to show how pathetically inadequate the frontier ethos is when confronted with any facet of life but the frontier; but by that time the reader's emotional response is it does not matter - these men drove cattle to Montana!

All America lies at the end of the wilderness road, and our past is not a dead past, but still lives in us. Our forefathers had civilization inside themselves, the wild outside. We live in the civilization they created, but within us the wilderness still lingers. What they dreamed, we live, and what they lived, we dream.

Fictions - in my case, novels only, to the tune of about thirty - starts in tactile motion; pecking out a few sentences on a typewriter; sentences that might encourage me and perhaps a few potential readers to press on. (Preface)
