Craig Johnson is the author of six Walt Longmire mysteries. The town of Durant is hunkered down for a winter storm, and for all the severity of the weather and isolation it might as well be on the moon. Winter tends to bring out the morose in my sadder but wiser sheriff; I looked at the book as my winter of our discontent.

Junkyard Dogs (Walt Longmire, #6) by Craig Johnson

It deals with the more venal aspects of human nature and that has a tendency in law enforcement to wear you down in the day-to-day, which might be what you're responding to. In direct opposition with this is that I think this is also the most humorous book I've written. Parental anxiety e. What inspired this?

Nobody pushes your buttons both good and bad like family, and with the claustrophobic aspects of the book, I thought it just fit. The microcosm of community is family, so it was the next logical step in going inward. In a lot of ways that's what the book is about; the things that people do to each other and just how far they'll go.

What starts out as a neighborly squabble erupts into a full-blown range war. Each book is an entity unto itself and you have to treat it with that respect; not try and get it to fit some artificial formula you've cooked up or that might've been successful for you before. Each of the books deals with a social problem as a catalyst such as the one for this one—the economy of the new West.

It might be dangerous rolling the dice on each book, but I'd rather offend the readers that way than by writing the same book all the time. You've incorporated the country's current economic woes into the story. Have you felt its repercussions even in your town of twenty-five residents? There's always a cushion in rural living, but times are hard for a lot of people and I think it's important to reflect the world in which the characters live accurately. The financial limitations that Walt faces as a small, rural police force are more of an advantage to the writing than a hindrance.

Walt can't always get on his cell phone or computer and look for answers, so instead he falls back on old-style policing, which lends itself to the exploration of character and humanity. That stuff is always going to be more interesting than gadgets. Sometimes, the setting of a novel can be so vivid that it's like another character. In Junkyard Dogs, one could say that about the weather. Is it really that much of a presence? Do you, like Walt, fantasize about retiring to New Mexico? You know, there was a point last spring where I tractored the six-foot drifts on my ranch road four times in two weeks, and that got old.

I live in Walt's surroundings and I think that's an advantage in the writing. I'll let you in on a dirty little secret of mine, a way that I'm very different from Walt—I love cold. I built my ranch in northern Wyoming for a reason. Walt fantasizes about warmer climates, but I don't think he'd last here—as much as he'd enjoy the great Mexican food, he needs the high plains. In one passage, the Emergency Room doctor tells Walt that Geo's "hair has grown through his long underwear" p.

Is this, or any of the other colorful stories in the novel based in real life? You caught that, huh? It's true. They brought a neighbor of mine in after he cracked a few ribs and discovered that indeed, his hair had grown through his long underwear. There are so many weird and wonderful things about where I live, and it's just too much of a temptation to place them in the novels; most of the time when somebody confronts me about something ridiculous in my books—it's actually a true story.

Your last novel, The Dark Horse, featured a highly intelligent horse and a woman who felt more connected to horses than humans. Here, the junkyard dogs, Butch and Sundance, have very distinct personalities and loyalties. Do you believe that animals are capable of good and evil?

I think we can discern their actions as good or evil, but that's just us. There was a character in my last novel who stated my feelings on the subject best, "Animals is some of the finest people I know. Thankfully, Dog was just doing his….

Some might think that big-time drug dealing is an urban problem. Would this be an incorrect assumption? For production purposes, these individuals need privacy and there's a lot of open country out there. This isn't exactly a news flash with the number of methamphetamine and marijuana busts that have been made across the country in very rural areas.

Previously, you've said that outrage over social inequities inspires your work. Is that the case in this novel? Not much question about that, is there? Johnson finally managed to find his groove, and he fits nicely in it. Book 3: Kindness Goes Unpunished … One of my favorites so far of the series, as Sheriff Longmire goes to visit his daughter in Philadelphia.

Book 5: The Dark Horse … Another one of my favorites. This time Walt must go undercover in the town he grew up in to find out if a man and a stable full of horses were burned alive on purpose, or by tragic accident. He has little in the way of evidence and the little town has a reputation for being uncooperative when it comes to law enforcement.

Book 6: Junkyard Dogs … By far the funniest book of the series.

http://gelatocottage.sg/includes/2020-04-07/2925.php This is a lighthearted story… well, up until somebody dies… actually a whole lot of somebodies, but this book is a fun read. It starts out with an old man tied to the bumper of a car who manages to take out a mailbox and gets up close and personal with a roadside ditch. And I have to say, things only get crazier from there. When a search of the dump unearths a surprising side business and two deaths follow, Walt realizes he has bigger problems on his hands.

Series fans as well as newcomers will cheer the laconic Walt every step of the way. Eres extraordinario. Dry Bones. Land of Wolves. You Are Extraordinary.
