SONG OF THE CHEYENNE
This date is seared in my brain because Jory turns around and gives me the very copy of SONG OF THE CHEYENNE that the panel of judges passed between themselves to read and vote on. It also helped that he wrote the date in the book before he handed it to me. Jory's just that kind of guy.
I've said before that Jory writes very well from the perspective of the American Indian and SONG OF THE CHEYENNE is his masterpiece. It sits on my the same shelf as my Will Henry and Robert J. Conley books do.
I didn't discover the 3 X 5 card, which you see scanned here as well, until some time later when I began the book. It seems to have been used as a bookmark by one of the judges. I've kept these two things together ever since.
