A Novel Idea Book Club meets monthly to discuss their latest book club read.
A Novel Idea Adult Book Club will be taking the month of December off. The next great title for our January 2018 meeting is:
Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
Set in the late 19th century, Lonesome Dove is an adventurous story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana. The narrative centers around two friends: Augustus McCrae, a reluctant rancher who has a way with women, and W. F. Call, whose talent for leadership conceals a secret sorrow. For Gus, Call, and the others who join the journey, the cattle drive is not only a daring and, perhaps, foolhardy endeavor, it comes to represent American dreams of the West.
Legend and fact, heroes and outlaws, whores and ladies, Indians and settlers – ‘Lonesome Dove’ is the central, enduring American experience dramatically recreated in a magnificent story of heroism and love; of honour, loyalty and betrayal. (LibraryThing)
