At the center of the second book in McMurtry's Lonesome Dove series is Captain Woodrow F. Call, a bounty hunter hired to track down and kill the elusive and brilliant young Mexican bandit, Joey Garza. In the chase that ensues, an old man's skills are matched against a young man's daring.

The novel was adapted into an American television miniseries starring James Garner as Call and Sissy Spacek as Lorena.
