Overview

In I, Tom Horn, originally published in 1975, Will Henry presents a fictional autobiography of Tom Horn that answers decisively the question—did Tom Horn kill fourteen-year-old Willie Kickell, or was he framed?

Horn was a cavalry scout in Arizona Territory during the last Apache campaigns, a champion rodeo rider, a Pinkerton, and finally a stock detective in Wyoming. Known and feared as el hombre de sombra (the shadow man), Horn’s lifetime (1860–1903) spans one of the most colorful and tumultuous periods of the Old West. In this novel Will Henry provides a multidimensional portrait of Tom Horn as a man capable of humor, compassion, and love, and also one who could kill without the least remorse. This figure is set against equally compelling portraits of Al Sieber, chief of scouts under General Crook, and apache leaders in the Four Families of the Chiricahuas, names now fabled in American frontier history Nana, Chato, and Geronimo.

Editorial Reviews

Santa Fe Reporter
"Henry is a creator of Literature. It is not only that he is a consummate storyteller, but his finely chiseled prose also sings with a lyricism that is as haunting as it is rare. His stories not only ring true, but also pull the reader feet-first into worlds that have vanished, except from the pages of books."—Santa Fe Reporter
Library Journal
The multiple-award-winning Henry here takes on legendary cowboy Tom Horn in this 1975 fictional autobiography. Henry presents the character as a man capable of kindness and humor who could also kill without remorse.
