Did You Know?


When Jake is leaving for Colorado Gus tells him not to "fall in with a bad bunch, we'd hate to have to hang you", which they actually wind up having to do in Lonesome Dove (1989) when Jake joins up with a group of men to travel across the Indian Nations with. These men turn out to be outlaws who murder several people and steal their horses, Jake stands by and does nothing to try and stop them, and doesn't even leave them. So when Gus and Woodrow catch up to them they hang Jake along with the rest of the group. See more »


As depicted in Lonesome Dove, "Maggie's Orchard" is located in the vicinity of San Antonio. Assuming that the location is perhaps twenty miles north of San Antonio (which is indicated in Lonesome Dove), this would make the distance from the center of Austin approximately 55 miles, which makes a buggy ride of perhaps three and a half hours. Maggie tells Gus ahead of time that it would be a long drive, which makes such a drive possible. See more »
