Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry

If you want more rugged heroes and dangerous frontiers, try these…

The Passage by Justin Cronin for a doorstopper that takes place primarily in the badlands

Castle by J. Robert Lennon for incredibly spare prose that conveys tension in every sentence

The Half-Made World by Felix Gilman for a frontier story but with punk-fantasy dangers

The Cold Dish by Craig Johnson for a modern-day version of Woodrow F. Call solving mysteries in backwoods of Wyoming
