By Larry McMurtry
The epic four-volume cycle that begun with Larry McMurty's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece, Lonesome Dove, is done with this great and haunting novel - a capstone in a potent culture of storytelling.
Texas Rangers August McCrae and Woodrow F. name, now of their center years, are only starting to take care of the enigmas of the grownup center - Gus along with his nice love, Clara Forsythe; and make contact with with Maggie Tilton, the younger whore who loves him. proud yet very various males, they enlist with a Ranger troop in pursuit of Buffalo Hump, the good Comanche battle leader; Kicking Wolf, the distinguished Comanche horse thief; and a dangerous 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 get in touch 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.
without delay vividly imagined and unflinchingly sensible, Comanche Moon is a sweeping, heroic event choked with tragedy, cruelty, braveness, honor and betrayal - and the fruits of Larry McMurty's peerless imaginative and prescient of the yankee West.
