ABOUT THE WESTERN STAR

The thirteenth novel in Craig Johnson’s beloved New York Times bestselling Longmire series, the basis for the hit Netflix series Longmire

Sheriff Walt Longmire is enjoying a celebratory beer after a weapons certification at the Wyoming Law Enforcement Academy when a younger sheriff confronts him with a photograph of twenty-five armed men standing in front of a Challenger steam locomotive. It takes him back to when, fresh from the battlefields of Vietnam, then-deputy Walt accompanied his mentor Lucian to the annual Wyoming Sheriff’s Association junket held on the excursion train known as the Western Star, which ran the length of Wyoming from Cheyenne to Evanston and back. Armed with his trusty Colt .45 and a paperback of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express, the young Walt was ill-prepared for the machinations of twenty-four veteran sheriffs, let alone the cavalcade of curious characters that accompanied them.

The photograph—along with an upcoming parole hearing for one of the most dangerous men Walt has encountered in a lifetime of law enforcement—hurtles the sheriff into a head-on collision of past and present, placing him and everyone he cares about squarely on the tracks of runaway revenge.

Heartland – The TV Series

I found this nice TV series from the Canadian TV network CBC called Heartland.  It is a multi-generational saga set in Alberta, Canada and centered on a family getting through life together in both happy and trying times.

The series is based on the Heartland book series by Lauren Brooke, but it changes the setting from Virginia, USA (in the original novels) to the small fictional town of Hudson, Alberta located in the foothills of the Alberta Rockies. Heartland follows sisters Amy and Lou Fleming, their grandfather Jack Bartlett, and Ty Borden, through the highs and lows of life at the ranch.

It is a family friendly TV show and it is filmed on location in Alberta, Canada.  The scenery is fantastic and the episodes and interesting.  Each episode is about 1-hour long and there are 18 episodes in each season.

They are currently filming the 10th season.  It is available on Netflix, Amazon Prime and from the iTunes Store.

If you want to learn more there is a nice write-up on Wikipedia but its content will give away the story lines and where the series is headed.  They also have information about each episode.
