I never researched a time period though I did talk with people about Texas Rangers and Gus.
Have you ever loved a book so much that you refused to watch the movie?
I mean, I tried.
The way McMurtry etched that man in my mind nobody ever could have created.
So today the assignment was to find a book which made you research, and instead I thought of my top five who made me stop reading and start saying, "You have to read this book," and it has to be just because of why you would read it.
Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry
You'd read it for Gus.
Today I am grateful for a writer who created a man that made me go, oh, Gus.
