Boone's Lick: A Novel [Larry McMurtry] on www.funoct.eu *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Larry McMurtry returns to the Old West in a fast-moving, comic tale.
Description:With Duane's Depressed , he completed the Thalia trilogy that began with The Last Picture Show and moved through Texasville , and he apparently finished off his career as a fictionist. His forays into nonfiction produced two memoirs, Walter Benjamin at the Dairy Queen and Roads , and a short biography, Crazy Horse But he couldn't do it, couldn't stay away from the work that's driven him all these years. Tracing the story of Crazy Horse pointed him perhaps down the path of his newest novel, Boone's Lick, for Crazy Horse appears here as an unnamed Indian who playacts having a lame horse and leads Colonel William Judd Fetterman and 80 cavalrymen into a trap on December 21, This event entered history as the "Fetterman Massacre," and it becomes the linchpin of this novel, where McMurtry returns to his fictional examination of the 19th-century American West.
