Horseman Pass By

Horseman Pass By by Larry McMurtry

Horseman Pass By was Larry McMurtry‘s first novel, and the basis for the film Hud. This is a beautiful classic western novel of a proud father, a son “gone bad” and a grandson, caught in the middle, and providing the narrative perspective.

I have read most of McMurtry’s books and this is one of his best. Not to be missed by anyone who likes non-genre western fiction. Grade: A.
