Honey in the Horn

Oregon State University Press

Honey in the Horn chronicles the struggle to settle down and eek out subsistence from a still-wild land. Clay Calvert, an orphan, works as a hand on an Eastern-Oregon sheep ranch until he stumbles into trouble and is forced to flee. Journeying through the state, from the lush coastal forests, to the rolling Columbia river, to the burnished wheat fields of the East, he encounters a cast of characters as rich and diverse as the land, including a Tunne Indian boy and a beautiful girl named Luce. Originally published in 1935, Honey in the Horn is the only book by a native Oregon author to ever receive a Pulitzer Prize for fiction.

H. L. Davis was a truly original Northwest voice. With the encouragement of H. L. Mencken, he published five popular novels, one book of poetry, and many short stories and essays in his career.
