Praise for Jory Sherman

"Trapper's Moon takes us on a rough but exhilarating journey of discovery with a colorful group of trappers and Indians, bound for the Shining Mountains. It is quite a ride."
—Elmer Kelton, author of The Good Old Boys (Trapper's Moon)

"A vigorous look at the world of the mountain men of the old West."
Publishers Weekly (Trapper's Moon)

"Jory Sherman is nothing less than a master storyteller of that time men flung themselves against the unknown, alone. Few can tell this tale... with as much authority—none with as much heart."
—Terry C. Johnston, author of Long Winter Gone (The Medicine Horn)

"Among today's novelists of the Old American West, Jory Sherman has no peer for powerful, poetic storytelling. Read THE MEDICINE HORN and see a gifted writer at the top of his craft."
—Dale L. Walker, Rocky Mountain News (The Medicine Horn)

"THE MEDICINE HORN provides the perfect canvas for the broad, bold strokes of Jory Sherman's brush. To read the poetry of his prose is to be transported bodily to the wind-lashed plains and blue-iced peaks of Sherman country. He is a national treasurer"
—Loren D. Estleman, author of WHISKEY RIVER (The Medicine Horn)

"Jory paints word pictures with remarkable skill. His characters come to life against a rich historical background."
—Janet Dailey, author of Aspen Gold (Trapper's Moon)
