Description
Along with the various series represented by The Last Picture Show, Terms of Endearment, and the Pulitzer Prize winner Lonesome Dove, Larry McMurtry also penned a remarkable string of novels chronicling an aristocratic British family on the frontier of the American West. Accompanied by a large and varied collection of retainers, Lord and Lady Berrybender abandon England in 1830, intending to travel up the Missouri and settle in Texas, hoping to broaden the perspectives of their children, including Tasmin, a young woman of grit, beauty, and cunning. Containing all four Berrybender novels, this is a saga full of real and fascinating characters, famous shoot-outs, adventure, humor, love, and loss.

"Irresistible storytelling.... The country he portrays is magnificent and violent, with shocking extremes of storm and tranquility. And McMurtry's exquisite descriptions are written for a single breath, bringing their objects to life with a few well-chosen words."NYTimes

"Few authors match McMurtry's voice of unsentimental authority when it comes to describing the random brutality and natural hazards that greeted those hardy pioneers who ventured west.... [Tasmin is] the best female character in McMurtry's ever-growing oeuvre since Jacy in The Last Picture Show."Chicago Tribune

"An old-fashioned, ripping good yarn ... a wistful elegy for a lost way of life, and an exploration of the choice to be made between the English life with its order and pattern, or the frontier life with its vast beauty and frequent danger."Seattle Times

"McMurtry has reminded us that, in the hands of a master, entertaining, old-fashioned storytelling rooted firmly in uniquely American experiences and landscape is pretty darn hard to beat."Washington Post Book World
