I watched Lonesome Dove last night and this morning. They make it seem easier than it was.
The distances in Texas are unfathomable. But Texas to Montana? Fantastic but true.
The story is a slightly fictionalized account of Charles Goodnight’s and Oliver Loving’s 1866 cattle drive. Loving (Gus) was attacked by Indians, and died of blood poisoning several weeks later with Goodnight (Call) at his side. Goodnight honored Loving’s dying request to be taken back to Texas for burial.
Goodnight made a second cattle drive two years later.
