First Frost is the latest in the New Your Times Bestselling Sheriff Walt Longmire series, the inspiration for the hit drama, Longmire.  Pre-purchase a copy of First Frost from Sunriver Books for a ticket to attend. Craig always puts on a great show!  He is a loyal friend to Sunriver Books, we are grateful to him for honoring us with entertaining presentations on the Longmire series.  Over the years the books have won a plethora of awards and an army of devoted readers.  Craig’s support means the world to us, we are thankful for his generosity in fitting us into a whirlwind tour!

Every new Longmire novel is a chance to catch up with Walt, Henry Standing Bear, Vic and the gang.  They come to feel like good friends, we want to know what they have been up to. Wyoming with its big sky, mountains, and lonesome beauty is a place that feel lost to time, as if you could see horsemen riding along the ridges, and in fact sometimes you can.

In First Frost Vic is attempting to clean out Walt’s basement, he is not being helpful, feeling more like he would prefer to leave the artifacts of his life safely sealed up down there.  In her excavations she comes across a surfboard, not aware Walt had ever surfed, she demands a story. And boy what a story it is, as Walt goes down memory lane to the time he and Henry Standing Bear were young guys in California. 

In 1964 Walt and Henry Standing Bear have just graduated, their draft deferment is over, and they will soon be traveling to Vietnam compliments of Uncle Sam.  Walt will be inducted in Parris Island South Carolina and Henry Standing Bear is going to Fort Polk Louisiana.  They intend to drive across country in Walt’s old farm truck, sort of a last hurrah of freedom before heading to a jungle in Vietnam where the return ticket is uncertain. 

The day before they leave, they spend surfing despite the fit Mother Nature is throwing. It is wild weather, with storm swamped waves crashing, but they refuse to be deterred.  As the seas roil, a boat is tossed about, eventually succumbing to the battering by capsizing and hurling the occupants overboard.  Without hesitation Henry Standing Bear and Walt do what they always do, meet danger head on and try their hardest to rescue those in trouble.  By the time the authorities and EMTs arrive, Walt and Henry are wet and tired.  But this boat was carrying illegal cargo, substances dangerous people will be upset about losing.

The next day they head east, intent on crossing the country and hopefully having a good time.  What are the odds they will make it all the way to their destination without trouble and danger?  Not good, not good at all.  It doesn’t take them long at all to find a dark puzzle in a strange place.

In current day Sheriff Walt Longmire is the subject of a hearing over the deadly incidents in The Longmire Defense.  Walt angered some extremely greedy, powerful people who like their secrets, prestige, and wealth to be undisturbed, and boy howdy did he ever disturb them!.  They are not at all resigned to suffering the outcome.  Walt will have to be on his game to thwart their aims.

It is fun reading about Walt and Henry Standing Bear as young men, just starting out, with Walt already showing the strong sense of justice that will make him an excellent lawman and his flat-out refusal to leave questions unanswered that will make him a great investigator, if it doesn’t kill him first.
