Larry McMurtry is the only author whose complete set of books I own. So that you don't assume I'm biased, I would rate his weakest work, such as The Evening Star, at only one star, reserving five for Lonesome Dove and Comanche Moon. Thus three stars for this gentle, nostalgic novella, enhanced by an excellent reader.

I've read all Larry McMurtry's Western stories and loved them all starting with his best, Lonesome Dove so I had to have this one. However the story seemed cut out from another that he never threw away. It also seems to be a repeat of many of his cowboy stories with a character from a past one passing through this one. Gave it 3 stars because the humorous dialog he imagines of that time (similar to his other westerns) that also illustrates the casual savagery of The West. He also paints a picture that makes me wonder how any sane person could ever imagine cowboy life as romantic and adventurous but it certainly was interesting.
