Winner of the 1986 Pulitzer Prize. This epic masterpiece is a novel of the American West as it really was. It is the story of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana- and much more. From the dust jacket- "It is a drive that represents for everybody involved not only a daring, even a foolhardy, adventure, but a part of the American Dream- the attempt to carve out of the last remaining wilderness a new life."
