Summary, etc.: Larry McMurtry's first three novels - all set in the north Texas town of Thalia after World War II - are collected here for the first time. McMurtry writes tragically of men and women trying to carve out an existence on the plains, where the forces of modernity challenge small - town American life. From a cattleranch rivalry to a love triangle involving a cowboy, his rancher boss and wife, and finally to the hardscrabble citizens of an oil-patch town trying to keep their only movie house alive, McMurtry captures the stark realities of the West like no one else.
