I spent the last eight weeks with the Hat Creek Cattle outfit, going with them on their epic adventure, a cattle track from Texas to Montana. And what a journey it was. At times funny, at times exciting and at times heart breaking. This book made me feel so emotional and I caught myself welling up w...

I would give it 10 stars if I could!This is one of the best books I've ever read. No wonder it won a Pulitzer!It was beautifully written. So much so that I felt as if I was transported back into that time period.I saw the film long before I even knew it was a book and I can say they got the castin...

I am completely overwhelmed and intimidated by the prospect of writing a review for this book. It's probably fair to call it a modern classic and it's been reviewed many times by much smarter and more perceptive people than I. What can I possibly add to the conversation that hasn't already been sa...

How shall I review a book which has left me speechless, empty? A book which I keep thinking about even after finishing it. No distraction is helping me to take this book and all those unforgettable characters out of my mind? I don’t know what to write or where to begin? I just know that I am missing...

This story is so big, giant, sprawling, so... EPIC. I absolutely loved this novel. Having been a fan of the 1989 mini-series, this book has been on my shelf to read for nearly 30 years -- yikes! Thanks to another member of my book club who chose it for our January read, I can finally say that I ...

“Yesterday's gone on down the river and you can't get it back.” I’ve been a big fan of Western movies for a while, but I’ve only recently started reading Western fiction. This Pulitzer prize-winning epic adventure is considered by many to be one of, if not the best novel in the genre. Now that I’ve...

Lonesome Dove screams epic. The trade paperback is 858 pages long; the story features dozens of perspectives, and tells of a cattle drive around 1877 by twenty people of 2,600 head over 3,000 miles from the Texas borderland to Northern Montana. This is a very celebrated book. It didn't just win the ...
