    One thought on “Jory”

    1. I never knew growing up that this was part of a series or I would have sought out more. I read it in high school. I remember a friend pointing it out to me because it had a "sex" scene in it. Whooo! But it was a good story in spite of that.Merged review:My first introduction to this book was in High school when someone showed it to me because it had a fairly explicit sex scene. Later I read the whole thing and thought it was really outstanding. The sex scene isn't much but the story is excellent [...]

    2. The library's copy is a 1969 hardcover published by G. P. Putnam's Sons.It has numerous readers' brands on the end papers. The old-timers library readers tended to leave a mark to remind themselves they had read the book. This old veteran has been to the bindery, so it probably lost many such markers when it was repackaged.Jacket description :"This fresh, funny, and fascinating escapades of a mild-mannered fifteen-year-old boy whose extraordinary talent for gunmanship makes him the fastest, dead [...]

    3. Terrific book. I read this because the author is married to a friend of my mom's from college - my mom likely forgot about the (for its time) explicit sex scene when she suggested I read it (as a teenager). I was enthralled with the main character and his story and plan to read it again - as will my daughter!

    4. I had almost forgotten I read this, probably about 1970. I have to laugh when I read the other reviews and so many of them mention the "sex scene" -- I guess at 16 that was a rare thing for me to run across. I remember liking the book overall, although I might have to find it and read it again to give it a thorough review.

    5. I first read this when I was to young to know or want to know anything about girls and all that mushy stuff and I remember skipping over that stuff to get to the action parts. I read it later as a teen and did an "a-ha!" rediscovery of the sex parts. I did enjoy both reads though.

    6. Well-written coming of age western, my paperback edition was marketed to cash in on True Grit's bestsellerdom. Interestingly, it launched a series of "Jory" westerns by Bass. Also inspired a forgotten Robby Benson western that I haven't seen.

    7. I first read this wonderful book many years ago. I've wanted to re read it and the rest of the series. Now I can. The book is an eloquent symphony of action/adventure and humor. Jory is a unique character. Mostly boy and partly man. It is more than just a coming of age book; it is the story of the beginning of Jory's growing up. Through the story he is only 15 years old, with the actions of a grown man.
