Publisher's Summary

The final book of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove tetralogy is an exhilarating tale of legend and heroism. Captain Woodrow Call, August McCrae's old partner, is now a bounty hunter hired to track down a brutal young Mexican bandit. Riding with Call are an Eastern city slicker, a witless deputy, and one of the last members of the Hat Creek outfit, Pea Eye Parker, now married to Lorena - once Gus McCrae's sweetheart. This long chase leads them across the last wild streches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier.


What the Critics Say

"Streets of Laredo is a splendid addition to the literary portrait of McMurtry's native Texas and the West that he has been creating for three decades. It's also one of his most affectingly melancholy books.... The characters are as finely etched as any McMurtry has ever minted." (Newsweek)
"One of McMurtry's most powerful and moving achievements." (Los Angeles Times)
"A marvelous novel in its own right and in every way a worthy successor to Lonesome Dove." (Chicago Tribune)

Torturous listening

Could he read any slower?? I am a big Larry McMurtry fan but after trying to listen for a few hours I had to delete this book because, aside from the story going nowhere, the reader was driving me crazy. I even increased the speed on my iPod but it didn't help. At the risk of sounding mean, I will avoid any other books narrated by this reader.

Loved it....didn't want the story to end!

I loved all the books in the Lonesome Dove series. Was originally sold on the series when I watched the mini series starring two of my all time favorites, Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Duvall. This motivated me to download all 4 books in this series and I loved all four and loved three of the four DVD's I subsequently purchased. Because I loved the audio book Streets of Laredo as much as the other three in the series, I ordered the DVD Streets of Laredo(the only DVD I had not yet seen). Unfortunately, James Garner just didn't do it for me. No way could he "hold a candle" to Tommy Lee Jones. But I highly recommend this audio book: great story and narration....wonderful value!
