Lonesome Dove is a sheriff’s deputy in Texas. He’s a tough, determined, yet mild man, who is very attached to his sister, Lola, and to his deceased father, Doc. He didn’t get to live his life like most of the other men because of his parents’ divorce, so he was thrown into this crazy town of cowboys and gunslingers and soon learns that he must become an alpha sheriff-that is, he must become a gang leader. The other men, the bounty hunters, become his pack and he leads them in a daring drive that will take them to the big city.
Lonesome Dove is a former cowboy and scout, who become a sheriff’s deputy after the death of his dad. He doesn’t know much about crime, so he doesn’t really know what the worst thing he can do would be if he encountered a criminal. In his first assignment as a sheriff’s deputy, he kills a man for shooting a bear. When he returns home, his sister is waiting for him and he’s ready to face the consequences of his actions, but he’s also suspicious of someone he sees at the farm, a vagabond named Elma. Someone who apparently has the ability to shape the fate of people he comes into contact with.
Lonesome Dove also has a younger sister, Flora, who is slightly rebellious and goes along with him on his ventures. One day, he captures an outlaw named Earle Haley, who was the son of a rancher and his wife. Elma is also there, along with her herd of elms. Lonesome and Flora have a bitter falling out after the sheriff arrives and they flee into exile together.
Lonesome and Flora are transported by the sheriff J.W. Smith to the Blue Duck ranch, where they meet two Chinese girls who were brought there as children by their desperate father. The girls run away from home and begin living with the Lonesome family. As time goes by, the two families become friends and they become the first family in town to have an encounter with a white bear. A Chinese medicine man named Lin Feng makes his home in the area and becomes a trusted friend of Lonesome and his sister.
Lonesome and Flora also become good friends with a local rancher named Juanita Deets, who teaches them many things about life and nature. This relationship develops into a romantic relationship between Lonesome Dove and Juanita. Lonesome learns that he needs to come to grips with his past and that he is in fact a former ranger for the police force. Lonesome finally convinces himself that he wants to be a lawyer and hence he becomes a lawyer. This is the story of Lonesome Dove and his relationship with a former Mexican Bandit and his eventual love with Flora, who is an extraordinary young lady.
