Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
1986 Pulitzer Prize
"Lonesome Dove" is about a cattle drive from South Texas to Montana. Former Texas Rangers Woodrow Call and Augustus McCrae have pretty much tamed Texas. They settled down to raise cattle. But a visit from Jake Spoon has put a burr under Captain Call's saddle. He wants to be the first to build a cattle ranch in what is still the wild west, Montana. So they head out through storms, Indian attacks, snake infested rivers and a multitude of other hazards.
This was a reread for me. This is my favorite book. Every few years I want to read it again.
