Fair. Good copy for reading, may have heavy page wear with writing textual notes highlighting or be an heavily used ex library copy with library markings, stickers or stamps. Dust jacket or accessories may not be included.
Very Good. Used. 8vo-over 7¾"-9¾" tall. A solid tight used copy, minor creasing to spine, owner's inked name on front page. A nice reading copy with a decent type face, much more pleasant to read than the tiny type on the pocket sized mass-market paperback from Pocket Books.
Used-Good. This book is in good condition. All pages are intact, there are no tears to the book and the book is nice and clean. The pages might be slightly dog eared through previous use and textbooks might have a small amount of highlighting but nothing which will obstruct getting the maximum out of the book.

Great book and story. The characters are as close to real as one can make them.

i was skeptical at first, having never read a western before, but the writing is wonderful and the story makes it hard to put down. paints an amazing picture of the american west.

One of his best
Larry McMurty is an extremely talented and versatile author. This book is well written and one of the "can't put it down" type that keeps you engrossed to the end.
Lonesome Dove is my favorite of all the novels written by McMurty.

One of the finest westerns I've ever read. The way the charactors were fleshed out, the story locations, guarentee that it will be read and enjoyed over and over again.

Everyone knows a Plulitzer Prize is given to denote good books. In the case of this one it is well deserved IMHO. I could envision the childhood of my own great great grandfather in its pages. I was enchanted by the plot as well as the insights into the psyche of "manly men". You'll enjoy this book even if you have seen the mini-series.
