Larry McMurtry, the prolific and popular author who took readers back to the old American West in his Pulitzer Prize-winning “Lonesome Dove” and returned them to modern-day landscapes in works such as his emotional tale of a mother-daughter relationship in “Terms of Endearment,” has died. He was 84.

McMurtry died Thursday night of heart failure, according to a family statement issued through a publicist on Friday. The statement did not say where he died but noted that he’ll be buried “in his cherished home state of Texas.”

He was a Texas treasure.  He also wrote other books which became movies "Horeseman, Pass By"  which became the movie "Hud" staring Paul Newman, and "The Last Pictureshow" which launched Cybill Shepherd's career.  That movie was filmed in his beloved hometown Archer City, with a fictional name of Thalia.
