In his epic masterpieces Lonesome Dove
and Streets of Laredo,
Larry McMurtry breathed extraordinary new life into the vanished American West and created two of the most memorable heroes in contemporary fiction: Augustus McCrae and Woodrow Call. Now McMurtry dazzles us once more with the long-awaited story of their early adventures.
As young Texas rangers, Gus and Call have much to learn about survival in a land fraught with perils: not only blazing heat and raging tornadoes, rolling rivers and merciless Indians, but also the deadly whims of soldiers. On their first expeditions -- led by incompetent officers and accompanied by the robust, dauntless whore known as the Great Western -- they will face death at the hands of the cunning Comanche war chief Buffalo Hump and the silent Apache Gomez. They will be astonished by the Mexican army. And Gus will meet the love of his life...
