Riding with Call are an Eastern city slicker, a witless deputy, and one of the last members of the Hat Creek outfit, Pea Eye Parker, now married to Lorena - once Gus's sweetheart. Their long, perilous chase leads them across the last wild stretches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, deep into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier. The final novel in the Lonesome Dove quartet, Streets of Laredo is an exhilarating, elegiac and achingly poignant tale of heroism and friendship.Read Less

Fine in Fine jacket. Octavo, 589 pp. Sequel to the author's Pulitzer Prize-winning "Lonesome Dove, " complete with unforgettable characters and more arcane Texas lore. A fine copy of the first ed. in its original color pictorial DJ having a mylar protector.
While many of the central characters were carried over from Lonesome Dove, I found this story very slow-paced. Also, based on the final outcomes of the book, I wonder about the state of mind of the author when he wrote it. I will say, living in Texas back in those days was ROUGH!!
