A love story, an adventure, and an epic of the frontier, this Pulitzer Prize winning classic is a grand novel about the last, defiant American wilderness. Journey to the dusty little Texas town of Lonesome Dove and meet an unforgettable assortment of heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers.

We brought in books for IMMEDIATE CHECKOUT - stop in to check one out and take it home today!

We're selecting discussion books from the PBS series The Great American Read. See the list of 100 titles
