Christmas Past

longSpirit of Steamboat by Craig Johnson of Longmire fame, is a newly released holiday book.  Being unfamiliar with Johnson, this is my first experience of his work.  Sadly, I cannot say I enjoyed this book.

This is a fictional story about the local sheriff in a small Wyoming town who has a Dickens type tale of his own to tell.  Steamboat is the name of a WWII aircraft which, in this story, is used to transport a young burn victim to a hospital in Denver during a raging snow storm.  It is at times touching, but I found it difficult to read due to what I thought were too many lengthy airplane descriptions which I was unable to picture in my head.  I imagine Johnson’s followers may appreciate this much more than I did.  If he is your cup of Christmas tea, enjoy!
