The Lone War Cry book. George Miller is a really good story-teller, and I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed reading this western novel.

Condition: Used: Very Good. The book has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged.

The Oregon Territories circa 1850 are home to the Blackfoot, Shoshone, and Crow, among many other warring tribes. The majesty of the untamed rivers and mountain ranges have provided a backdrop to the ever-present conflicts between these proud peoples, but contact with the white man is changing the balance of power in unimaginable ways.

This novel is one of the most talked about western novels of all time. This book centers on the lives of ranchers and farmers in 1950s Texas. This novel isn’t what we think of as a classic western, as there aren’t any cowboys or cattle rustlers. This is about a family in the west who struggle to survive.

The Oregon Territories circa 1850 are home to the Blackfoot, Shoshone, and Crow, among many other warring tribes. The majesty of the untamed rivers and mountain ranges have provided a backdrop to the ever-present conflicts between these proud peoples, but contact with the white man is changing the balance of power in unimaginable ways. Bitter events make enemies of Lame Elk of the Shoshone, tragic in his rise to prominence, and Two Horns of the Blackfoot, reluctant in his call to leadership. Separately, these two warriors must lead their people against a myriad of threats, not the least of which include disease, famine, and almost constant battle. As life continues unabated in the Indians' struggle for dominance, the white man is making deeper inroads into the western United States, with adventurers and criminals seeking their fortunes in a lawless land. Driven into the mountains to escape a manhunt, a falsely accused young man named Corby ends up saving Donovan, the ex-marshal pursuing him. The two unlikely friends travel through the Oregon Territories, where Corby finds he has an uncanny ability with a gun -- and establishes something of an unwanted reputation. The Lone War Cry follows these unforgettable characters through numerous hardships and challenges until circumstance links their stories together, driving them to their dramatic conclusions.

A fairly good book despite numerous spelling errors in the text. The author is somewhat ignorant of native American culture in some places.

Simply put, the most enjoyable read that I can ever remember of having. Forget genre, READ THIS BOOK. You will love it. I will henceforth buy anything this guy writes, put me on pre-order now.

I really enjoyed this book. Good characterizations, plot lines, historically accurate and informative. I didn't give it five stars for two reasons. First, it's really two story lines in one book. One setting takes place primarily in the rough and tumble early days of San Francisco, circa 1850, with minor side stories in New Orleans and Tucson. The other story line has to do with the Indian cultures principally the Shoshone, Blackfoot and Crow in the Big Sky country in and around Yellowstone. It's a time when Indian tribes are dealing with the influx of the White men and how the shrinking West pits tribe against tribe. Both story lines are well done but didn't have any relationship to each other than the fact that they occurred at the same time in history. It seemed just as I was getting involved in the San Francisco plot I'd be switched to the Indian story and vise versa. Both stories were excellent but I would rather have each storyline as its own book rather than mixing them in one book. The second reason I didn't rate it as four stars was the ending. I guess it's personal preference but I would have preferred more certainty or closure with respect to the main characters. Much is left to our imagination. These minor annoyances aside this is a wonderful book and I recommend it highly especially if you're interested in this pre-civil war period of our country's expansion west and the beginning of the end of the Western Indian cultures.

I give this one an A+ as a quality western fiction novel. I love to read, but I don't always finish every book I start. This book was one of those rare finds I didn't want to put down. The Lone War Cry kept my attention from the beginning. Even with the start of the first chapter, I quickly found myself trotting right along beside young blue-eyed Corby as a turn of events partners this outlaw with his former foe, the rugged ex-marshal Donovan. Their intriguing contrast of youth vs. experience enhanced the adventure as the two build their friendship while traveling on a sometimes inhospitable journey west. The story captures the true character of the 1850's westward expansion and accurately depicts the historical struggles of both the white man and the Native American tribes. The author did his homework and it shows. The challenges of rapid change forced onto the Shoshone, Blackfoot, Crow, and others tribes caused by the invasion of pioneers is depicted with refreshing realism. Although this book has a fiction label, the author's accurate portrayal of this period in history grips you emotionally and reels you in. I found myself rooting for the victors, and sometimes even for the villains! Along with a host of interesting characters, this genuine cowboy adventure has a touch of humor, a hint of romance, a sense of wisdom, and a saddle bag of adventure! I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys good reading.

The best western novel I have read since Lonesome Dove. Mr Miller did his homework and does a great job of describing the characters and landscape. I felt like I was there. It is a fast moving novel and I enjoy the way each chapter jumped between the Indians, Bad Guys and the Good guys. This is a must read for anyone who enjoys a good novel, no matter what genre.

I bought this book based on the reader reviews. Having just purchased a 5 volume fiction series also based on reader reviews -- only to find it awful (I finished it nonetheless out of cheapness) -- I was a little leery. From the first page of The Lone War Cry, I was hooked, and relieved to find it well written, crisply paced, and a delight. Many key characters, each well developed. Like a drink of cool water after too much soda pop. Nothing formulaic. I like to think my standards for western fiction are fairly high, McMurtry, Cormac McCarthy, Annie Proulx, and I was happy that Miller didn't disappoint. I hope he does another -- maybe even a sequel.
This is a wonderful novel and a MUST READ! It brought back many great memories of my own years exploring and experiencing the mountains, streams, valleys, and lakes of the Northwest. The novel is set in the 1850's, a time of expansion for the United States. The author has certainly done his homework as he brings out the strengths and weaknesses of his characters showing the struggles of the white and red man as they accepted their destiny. I just wish there were more books like this to read. I am looking forward to the sequel.
