Larry Jorgenson practiced law for many years following a degree in Political Science and a Juris Doctorate. He spent time as a US Magistrate Judge, as an Assistant United States Attorney and as a State of Wyoming prosecutor. In private practice Larry was recognized with the highest ratings given by the profession’s rating services including Best Lawyers in America and Martindale.

Influenced by the writings of his poet father, Larry became interested in the power and the beauty of simple words, the outdoors and its creatures - their impact on our lives. He publishes poetry from time to time, and after retirement from his law practice began writing his debut novel, “Not Water Over the Dam.” 

Larry is a hunter-fisher-conservationist and lives in the valley of Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

The dams on the Missouri River did more than take away Indian bottom lands, for tribal cultures were disrupted and lives forever changed. A young Lakota’s quest to heed his grandmother’s vision and seek revenge against the white man for the dams, becomes entangled in white man racism and legal system injustice. The miscarriage of justice leads to a murder and to an eco- terrorist plot that bring together a white girl and the young Lakota. With the help of a white lawyer and the FBI, Charlie Red Tail and Johanna Johnson take mystery to a strange conclusion that is hidden in the world of crime and in an unexpected place.
