Lonesome Dove Mass market paperbound - 1986

by Larry McMurtry


About this book

An epic story of two retired Texas Rangers on a cattle drive to Montana that is loosely basedon historic events from the 19th century, the original Lonesome Dove story was written to be a screenplay called "The Streets of Laredo.” The 1970s film was to be directed by Peter Bogdanovich, starring John Wayne, James Stewart, and Henry Fonda. However, due to casting issues, the movie was abandoned. Larry McMurtry later turned the Lonesome Dove script into a full-length Pulitzer Prize-winning novel. The novel was later re-adapted to a four-part television miniseries starring Tommy Lee Jones, Robert Duvall, and Robert Urich.

Summary

HASH(0x1ba5b180)

First line

WHEN AUGUSTUS CAME OUT on the porch the blue pigs were eating a rattlesnake-not a very big one.

First Edition Identification

Published by Simon and Schuster in 1985 in black cloth, the copyright page of first editions of Lonesome Dove have a complete number line beginning with "1.” The first issue jacket has no statement of the Pulitzer Prize, and the text has an error on page 621, line 16 reading "none" instead of "done." However, this specific error has been noted in printings as recent as the 25th and is not necessarily considered a first edition point of issue.
