About the Author

Jory Sherman began his literary career as a poet in San Francisco's famed North Beach in the late 1950s, during the heyday of the "Beat Generation". He has been published widely in literary journals, including Epos, Quicksilver, The New York Herald-Tribune, Flame, Laugh, Literary, The Galley Sail Review, Beatitude, and many others. He read his poetry in San Francisco at The Fox & Hound, The Coffee Gallery, The Cellar, and The Spaghetti Factory as well as The Troubadour and The Bridge in Los Angeles, and on National Public Radio, Berkley, California. He and poets Tracy Thompson and Diane Wakoski became the San Francisco Troubadours and read their poems around the Bay Area at coffee houses. The winner of numerous awards for his poetry and prose, he was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in Letters for his novel, Grass Kingdom. He won a Spur Award from Western Writers of America for The Medicine Horn. He has also won several awards from the Missouri Writers Guild, and similar organizations. He has published more than 350 books since 1965, more than 1000 articles, and 500 short stories. In 1995, Sherman was inducted into the National Writer's Hall of Fame. His collection of western short stories, Shadows of Yesteryear, with a cover of the Alamo painted by Jory, was published in May, 2010. He now lives on a lake in northeast Texas with his wife Charlotte. His latest novels, The Dark Land, Sunset Rider, Apache Sundown, and Texas Dust were published by Berkley. The first novel in his new series, The Owlhoot Trail, Abilene Gun Down was published by Pocket Books on June 1, 2004. He recently completed writing two series for Berkley, The Vigilante, and The Savage Gun. He also wrote a series for Harper Collins, The Shadow Rider. He wrote two novels under the name of his deceased friend, Ralph Compton: The Palo Duro Trail and The Ellsworth Trail for Signet. He recently finished writing his fifth novel in the Savage Gun series for Berkley, entitled Savage Vengeance. The fourth book in that series, Savage Hellfire, was published in June, 2010. Western Trail Blazer released The Running Gun on March 28, 2011, and The Ballad of Pine Lake will be coming soon. Literary critics consider Sherman to be among the top five of western writers, according to Dale Walker, historian.
