Song of the Cheyenne

HE WOULD BE CALLED SUN RUNNER As a boy he carried the medicine arrows into battle for the first time and saw his first victory. They knew then that he was a warrior destined for greatness among the Cheyenne. They did not know what destiny held for them until Old Lodge spoke the fateful words. It was a time that needed mystery and power, a time before the impact of the white man was fully felt... a time that would bring the beginning of an end at places like Sand Creek and Wounded Knee. It was the time of Sun Runner. Praise for Jory Sherman "Jory Sherman is a highly skilled, always dependable storyteller... Song of the Cheyenne is a rare example of successfully writing in an Indian point of view... a powerful story." —El Paso Herald-Post

Book 5
Fresh from a war with rival rancher Miguel Aguilar, and still licking family wounds, Martin Baron and his son, Anson, go their separate ways as Jory Sherman continues the epic saga of the Barons.

Martin heeds the call of the Texas Rangers, hoping to restore honor to his native Texas as the storm of war quickly approaches. News from the east speaks of a long and drawn out conflict between the Union and the Confederacy. Though Martin never believed in slavery and holds no loyalty to the Confederacy, the Rangers seem like his best bet to defend his home, and perhaps give him the opportunity to bring Aguilar to justice.

Unlike his father, whom he sees as abandoning the ranch in its time of greatest need, Anson stays behind to pick up the pieces after the war. He wishes to bring the Barons' ranch to new glory, but to do so, he'll need to capture the elusive white bull, El Blanco Diablo, to sire his herd. And of course there's Lorene Purvis, the beautiful woman who's pledged her love to Anson; she may be the key to a new start.

The trail soon grows rocky for the Baron men. When Aguilar escapes after a bloody ambush, he has nothing but revenge against the Baron family festering in his head. Meanwhile, Anson's vaqueros have abandoned the Baron ranch, and a band of Apache have set their sights on making it their own the only way they know how . . . by killing the man who runs it.
The Barons have always been respected, but as rough times roll in, they're forced to reevaluate where their friends' loyalties lie, while also questioning their own. One thing's for sure, they won't lay down without a fight, and they'll do anything to defend The Baron Honor.
