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 *
