Description
The final published novel in Larry McMurtry's celebrated tetralogy, Comanche Moon is actually the chronological prequel to the Pulitzer Prize winner Lonesome Dove, and the inspiration for its own television miniseries, starring Val Kilmer, Steve Zahn, and Karl Urban. On the wild frontier in the 1850s, Texas Rangers Gus McCrae and Woodrow Call face off against against Comanche warriors and Mexican bandits, under the command of Captain Inish Scull. After Scull's favorite horse is stolen, he decides to track him down alone, charging Gus and Call to lead the other Rangers back to Austin. However, on their return, Gus is greeted by the news that his sweetheart is to marry another man, and Call finds that the town's most notorious woman is desperate to settle down with him and become respectable. So when Scull's wealthy wife demands that her errant husband be brought home, with feelings akin to relief the two men set off once more into the vast, untamed plain.

"The [frontier] myth is intact, if a tad tattered by McMurtry's darkly comedic touch and sly debunking of chivalric conventions. But at its core are McMurtry's respect and gift for exaggerated and fanciful pageantry and heroic form."NYDaily News
