From Library Journal
Woodrow Call is 20 years older than he was when he buried Gus at the end of Lonesome Dove (Audio Reviews, LJ 2/15/93); too old, perhaps, to track down a brilliant young Mexican bandit who has been terrorizing most of the Texas frontier. With two untrained deputies, plus his aging old corporal, Pea-Eye, Call leads a chase that scatters bodies all along the border. This sequel to Lonesome Dove could easily have been a typical action-packed Western; instead, it is distinguished by two unusual female characters--Lorena from Lonesome Dove and a strong Mexican woman named Maria--who fight for respect and decency in the face of unrelieved chauvinism and violence so typical of the West at that time. Daniel von Bargen recounts it all in a superb dramatic narration, one that does full justice to his reputation as an accomplished stage and film actor. As a welcome bonus the publishers have appended information about all the technical staff responsible for the production. Less welcome, though, is the lightweight packaging that will not survive many circulations in a busy library.- Jo Carr, Sarasota, Fla.
