The 4th of 4 novels in the Lonesome Dove set. The second best of the four.
They were written 3, 4, 1, 2. Their order of goodness is 3, 4, 2, 1. There are
big gaps in quality between all four novels. This one is very good because all
the characters are depicted vividly, and because the good characters are enjoyable
to observe. It is melancholy because now they are all old and losing their vigor,
especially Woodrow Call.
