Summary :

My foot's in the stirrup,
My pony won't stand;
Goodbye, old partner,
I'm leaving Cheyenee.
  --Old Cowboy Song

Leaving Cheyenne, McMurtry's second novel, traces the lives of three West Texas characters as they follow that sundown trail: Gideon Fry, the serious rancher; Johnny McCloud, the free-spirited cowhand; and Molly Taylor, the sensitive woman they both love and who bears them each a son. Tragic circumstances mark the trail but McMurtry's style never turns melodramatic or sentimental.
