Customer Review

on 25 September 2010
Larry McMurtry is really a great writer. This book isn't as good as Lonesome Dove, but it is thoroughly enjoyable from beginning to end. I think he could have made it an epic like Lonesome Dove, and I'm not sure why he didn't, but that doesn't take anything away from it, and it made me want to read more of his books, as I've only read the Lonesome Dove series. It is about a family from a small town in Missouri back in the 1800's who decide to take a trip up to Wyoming, and it is told through a fifteen year old boy in the family. I don't know if any other writer is as good as McMurtry when it comes to writing in the vernacular, and he has a great sense of humour as well. There are a few fairly brutal scenes in this book, so I don't think I would recommend it for children, but I think that most adults would enjoy it if they like well-drawn characters, short chapters and simple, good writing.
