Not yet twenty, Gus and Call enlist as Texas Rangers under the command of Caleb Cobb, a capricious outlaw determined to seize Santa Fe from the Mexicans. The two young men experience their first great adventure in the barren, empty landscape of the great plains, in which arbitrary violence is the only law - whether from nature, or from those whose territory they must cross in order to reach New Mexico. Danger, sacrifice and fear test Gus and Call to the limits of endurance, as they seek the strength and courage to survive against almost insurmountable odds in the West of early nineteenth-century America.Hide synopsis

As with all of Larry McMurtry's novels you become hooked on the characters. After reading Lonesome Dove I couldn't get enough. Dead Man's Walk adds to the saga and you can't wait to get to the next adventure. This beginning story on how they became rangers and what happened in their lives and friendship to make them the men we meet in Lonesome Dove is a must for all fans. Mr. McMurtry's characters from those you love to those you hate are written in a manner that you feel part of the experience. You know these people. I'm alway's sad when his stories are over. I want them to go on week after week.
