Inhaltsangabe: General FictionLarge Print Edition*A New York Times Bestseller*A Book-of-the-Month Club Main Selection*A History Book Club SelectionCompletely able to stand on its own, Comanche Moon completes Larry McMurtrys four-volume epic of the American West that began with Pulitzer Prize-winning Lonesome Dove. Here we follow McCrae, Call and their comrades in their bitter struggle to protect an advancing Western frontier against the defiant Comanches in an adventure full of heroism, tragedy, courage, honor, and betrayal.
Rezension: In a book that serves as a both a sequel to Dead Man's Walk and a prequel to the beloved Lonesome Dove, McMurtry fills in the missing chapters in the Call and McCrae saga. It is a fantastic read, in many ways the best and gutsiest of the series. We join the Texas Rangers in their waning Indian-fighting years. The Comanches, after one last desperate raid led by the fearsome-but-aging Buffalo Hump, are almost defeated, though Buffalo Hump's son, Blue Duck, still terrorizes the relentless flow of settlers and lawmen. As Augustus and Woodrow follow one-eyed, tobacco-spitting Captain Inish Scull deep into a murderous madman's den in Mexico, their thoughts turn toward the end of their careers and the women they love in remarkably different ways back in Austin. What's amazing about McMurtry's West is that he sees beyond the romance. Neither his Indians, his cowboys, his gunslingers, nor his women act the way they did in either Zane Grey novels or John Wayne movies. Incredible beauty and lightning-quick violence are the bookends of his West, but it is the in-between moments of suffering and boredom where McMurtry shines. The suffering is poignant and heart-rending; the boredom tempered with doses of Augustus McCrae's sharp humor. Don't be surprised if you find yourself crying and laughing on the same page.
