Streets of Laredo Summary

Streets of Laredo by Larry McMurtry

The final novel in Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove quartet, Streets of Laredo is an exhilarating and achingly poignant tale of heroism and friendship.

Captain Woodrow Call, Gus McCrae's old partner, once a youthful Texas Ranger, 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's sweetheart.

Their long, perilous chase leads them across the last wild stretches of the West into a hellhole known as Crow Town and, finally, deep into the vast, relentless plains of the Texas frontier.

Streets of Laredo Reviews

One of McMurtry's most powerful and moving achievements * Los Angeles Times *
Gorgeous . . . violent, funny, achingly sad, filled with heroism and regret . . . If you can put Streets of Laredo down, I'll eat my ten-gallon hat * Cosmopolitan *
Those who have been waiting . . . for an appropriate sequel to the memorable and Pulitzer-winning Lonesome Dove can take heart. Streets of Laredo continues that epic of the waning years of the Texas Rangers with all the narrative drive and elegiac passion of its forerunner * Publishers Weekly *
McMurtry has written a sad, funny elegy not only for his characters' pasts, but for the waning of the American West * New York Times *
