• Highly acclaimed, iconic author: Larry McMurtry is renowned for his elegiac prose, sharp wit, and engaging plotlines. His Thalia, Texas, series is among his most famous and Duane is an icon as much as his creator.

• The Thalia Finale: Readers have followed the life of Duane through The Last Picture Show, Texasville, Duane’s Depressed, and When the Light Goes . Rhino Ranch, the final episode in Duane’s saga, represents the end of an era and is the most unusual and compelling novel in the series.

• Irony, romance, and cycle of life: Duane comes back from a near-fatal heart attack to discover that his new neighbor has recently opened a rhino preserve on her property. As he watches his world change around him, he reminisces on love affairs past and the missed opportunities he now regrets. Rhino Ranch is a bittersweet and fitting end to this iconic series, a tribute to all of the emotion, hilarity, whimsy, and poignancy that readers have followed across decades.

In Rhino Ranch, Larry McMurtry returns to his lighter side and his recurring protagonist, Duane Moore. The gentle comedy tracks the once-powerful oilman as he adjusts to his own retirement and to the changes a new nature preserve brings to his small Texas town.
