In 1985, after staying away from the Western Genre most of his career, Larry McMurtry wrote the greatest western ever, Lonesome Dove. In 1989 a mini-series from the book was made; starring Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall. Lonesome Dove is a story that my boys and I love. We have read the book and watched the whole movie countless times (it's long!). Both the mini-series and the book stand alone, but if you've never read it then you need to! Journey to the little Texas town of Lonesome Dove and meet an assortment of heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, indians and settlers. Richly authentic, beautifully written, always dramatic, Lonesome Dove is a book to make us laugh, weep, dream, and remember.
