message 1: by Kirk (new)

Kirk I've not read LD, but the original mini series w/ Duval and Jones is probably one of the best western's ever to hit the screen. I have read his "Anything for Billy" novel about Billy the Kid. McMurtry definitely has his own style. Something you might not have known: He also wrote "Terms of Endearment", "The Last Picture Show" and the book that was turned into the movie "Hud" with Paul Newman.

Joshua Parkinson It's pretty good so far, Kirk. I'm listening to the audio version and there's a great narrator with a nice "cowboy" accent. 36 hours long, though!

Thanks for the tip on Anything for Billy.
