Leaving Cheyenne. Larry McMurtry.

Leaving Cheyenne.

New York: Harper & Row, 1963. First Printing of the First Edition. McMurtry's second novel filmed as "Lovin' Molly." A Fine copy in a Fine, bright, unclipped dj. This copy is inscribed to Mel Edlestein, librarian of the Getty Museum, and signed "Larry". A superb copy. This is McMurtry's second novel about love and loss on the great plains of Texas. From 1920’s ranching to range cowboys and WWII grief, McMurtry is the undisputed father of the Western literary epic. Leaving Cheyenne traces the loves of three West Texas characters as they follow that sundown trail: Gideon Fry, the serious rancher; Johnny McCloud, the free-spirited cowhand; and Molly Taylor, the sensitive woman they both love and who bears them each a son. Told in alternating perspectives over sixty years, Leaving Cheyenne follows their dreams, secrets, and grief against a changing American landscape. Item #22842
