From the frontier South to the brawling, bawdy streets of still-French St. Louis, to the awesome grandeur of the high plains, Lem Hawke was the greatest of the Big Sky Mountain Men. He lived hard, loved hard, and when he fought, it was war to the knife.

THE MEDICINE HORN is the story of his life, loves and violent wars--an epic tale of the Old West as big as the frontier and as rugged as the men and women who made it their own.

Praise for Jory Sherman

"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

"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 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
