The last natural cowboy and the last natural bear duel in the wilderness of Yellowstone — each of them hungry for a death with meaning. Gib is the story of the passing of a generation of men who suffered the Great Depression, fought in WWII and Korea, then lived to mourn the greatest threat yet to their way of life - the gentrification of the West. It is also the story of a ranching family's struggle to save the home ranch, and their share of the threatened ranching culture.
“Jon Horton is a Wyoming treasure and he has given us another Western gem. In ‘Gib’ he has managed to fashion a piece that reflects the unadorned but beautifully elusive quality of life in the real west. If you are new to the land, this will help you to understand it. If you were born here, you will know this as the real thing…pure gold!

" ‘Gib’ was wrought with the sure hand of a writer who knows the real west and the passion of a man who loves it."
