La description:

When Larry McMurtry's classic novel of the post-World War II era was originally published in 1961, it created a sensation in Texas literary circles. Never before had a writer portrayed the contemporary West in conflict with the Old West in such stark, realistic, unsentimental ways. Horseman, Pass By, on which the film Hud is based, tells the story of Homer Bannon, an old-time cattleman who epitomizes the frontier values of honesty and decency, and Hud, his unscrupulous stepson. Caught in the middle is the narrator, Homer's young grandson, Lonnie, who is as much drawn to his grandfather's strength of character as he is to Hud's hedonism and materialism. Memorable characters, powerful themes, and illuminating detail make Horseman, Pass By vintage McMurtry. The stunning first novel from the Pulitzer prize-winning author of Lonesome Dove. Young Lonnie idolizes Hud--a wild-acting man who'll do anything t o get what he wants, whether it hurts someone or not. There are only two people Hud won't bow to. And when he tries to conquer them, nothing will ever be the same.
