In this order:

Lonesome Dove

Dead Man's Walk

Comanche Moon

Streets of Laredo


Dead Man's Walk is the first in the Lonesome Dove series. Shouldn't it be read first? According to you, Lonesome Dove should be read before Dead Man's Walk. Was this a typo?

Comanche Moon is before Lonesome Dove too.

re: Recommend a good Western/Western series
I read Lonesome Dove and it was one of the best books I’d ever read. I planned on reading the sequel but then I learned that Pea Eye married Lorie. I immediately had no interest in it. How could anyone who read Lonesome Dove believe for a second that Pea Eye and Lorie would end up together

Lonesome Dove
True Grit

Two of the best books written in any genre.

I really like Elmer Kelton's books.

If not mentioned. Cormac McCathy's blood meridian is pretty heavy.

Two works of his you may be aware of are no country for old men and the road. .

Agree with the listed order.
Lonesome Dove should be read first. It is the pinnacle of character arc for the main characters.
Dead Man's Walk and Comanche Moon should be read as prequels. They add to the depth and background of the main book in the series, LD.
Didn't make it that far into Streets of Laredo. Hard to read a book in this series that is without one of its most important characters (I got fussed at for spoilers in a different LD related thread where I named who I'm talking about).
