    Leaving Cheyenne

    The novel Leaving Cheyenne by Larry McMurtry is a wonderful story built around the everlasting love triangle among the three main characters. I chose to read this novel because I enjoy reading westerns and it is set in Wyoming in the early 1900's. McMurtry uses amazing visual imagery to bring you to the world of the characters at every moment in the novel. It is incredibly easy to imagine the ranches where memories are made and hearts are broken, and to see how time and technology take their toll on the land. The story spans over sixty years and the strength and endurance of a friendship between two men and the love they both feel for the same woman. Gideon Fry is a rich rancher's son who wants to rebel from his father and the way of life he is destined to inherit, but his conscience always gets in his way. Johnny McCloud is a poor farmer's son who is a cowboy at heart. Molly Taylor, the incredibly strong woman whom Gid and Johnny both love, is the daughter of and alcoholic and has lost every man she has ever cared about. McMurtry was able to write the book from each of these three characters' points of view by dividing the book into three sections. This enables the reader to get to know each one of the characters' personal thoughts, but this format is also a little confusing. The plot is full of unexpected twists and turns which keep the pages turning. The characters are forced to make choices between right and wrong, needs and wants, and convenience over comfort. This novel will make you laugh and make you cry. Leaving Cheyenne is beautifully written, and I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys a great love story.

    Masterful portrayal of Texas life.

    No other book I have ever read has captured the feeling of rural Texas life as has Leaving Cheyenne. Being familiar with small-town life and the cowboys that live there, this book seemed to have been written in my back yard. Very touching depiction of love, loss, romance and pride. My favorite book to date.
