A Longmire Story

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Sheriff Walt Longmire and Henry Standing Bear embark on their latest adventure in this novella set in the world of Craig Johnson’s New York Times bestselling Longmire series—the basis for the hit drama Longmire, now on Netflix

Craig Johnson's new novel, The Western Star, will be available from Viking in Fall 2017.

When Wyoming highway patrolman Rosey Wayman is transferred to the beautiful and imposing landscape of the Wind River Canyon, an area the troopers refer to as no-man's-land because of the lack of radio communication, she starts receiving “officer needs assistance” calls. The problem? They're coming from Bobby Womack, a legendary Arapaho patrolman who met a fiery death in the canyon almost a half-century ago. With an investigation that spans this world and the next, Sheriff Walt Longmire and Henry Standing Bear take on a case that pits them against a legend: The Highwayman.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 28, 2016 – Wyoming's scenic Wind River Canyon provides the setting for this atmospheric Walt Longmire novella, an update, according to Johnson (The Spirit of Steamboat) in the acknowledgments, of a Charles Dickens ghost story, "The Signal-Man." For three months, Rosey Wayman, a Highway Patrol officer, has been on duty in the canyon, and on some nights, she receives a distress call on her radio: "officer needing assistance." Rosey, who's due for a psychiatric evaluation, thinks the call is from Bobby Womack a patrolman who perished nearly 50 years earlier while trying to stop a runaway fuel tanker in a canyon tunnel. Longmire, the sheriff of Absaroka County, and his sidekick, Henry Standing Bear, assume there has to be a natural explanation, but in their search for the truth they learn some surprising things about Bobby and the long-ago theft of a cache of Morgan silver dollars. You don't have to be a fan of Longmire, the hit Netflix series, to appreciate this clever tale. 10-city author tour.

Customer Reviews

The Highwayman

Love all the Longmire books. The characters are meticulously drawn and remain true throughout the series. I did miss some of the "regulars" from Abseroka County, but Walt and Henry, and the white owl are here, and that's enough sometimes.

The Highwayman

Another, new, superb Wyoming based Walt Longmire, Henry Standing Bear novel by Craig Johnson. It's almost as good as being there.
