Longmire Days in Pictures: Boy Howdy, Do They Love Walt in Wyoming!

For the third straight summer, Buffalo, Wyoming magically transformed (with the help of one hard-working Chamber of Commerce and an incredible team of volunteers) into Durant, the Absaroka County seat, and the characters of Craig Johnson’s fictional crime series came to life as thousands of fans converged on the town of about 4,600. This is, of course, the annual Longmire Days, which occurred July 18-20, 2014.

SEE ALSO: Of course, we're covering Season 4 of Longmire! Let's talk about the premiere “Down By the River”!

And for the second year, many of the stars of the A&E television show based on Johnson’s series also attended and took part in the festivities. That included: Robert Taylor (Walt Longmire), Katee Sackhoff (Vic Moretti), Adam Bartley (The Ferg), Cassidy Freeman (Cady Longmire), Zahn McClarnon (Mathias), and Louanne Stephens (Ruby).


Friday, July 18th kicked off with an autograph session featuring Craig and all the actors, except Cassidy Freeman. (Editor’s Note: These are the very signatories to the poster in the comments sweepstakes below!) Fans from far and wide began lining up outside the old Clear Creek Elementary School before 7 a.m., when Craig Johnson pulled into the lot in the replica sheriff’s Bronco. The signing wouldn’t start until 9 a.m., but in the meantime, souvenirs were sold, people took pictures with the Bronco and chatted with fellow fans, and volunteers mingled throughout the crowd letting everyone know what to expect. There was an excitement in the early morning Durant air.

[And that was only the beginning...]

Fresh Meat: The Trinity Game by Sean Chercover

The Trinity Game by Sean ChercoverThe Trinity Game by Sean Chercover is a novel of international intrigue (available July 31, 2012).

Sean Chercover fans have had a bit of a wait for his new crime novel. The wait is over, and he’s returned with a story that bears no resemblance to his Ray Dudgeon P.I. novels. However, I’m confident his fans will not be disappointed.

The protagonist of The Trinity Game, Daniel Byrne, is a Catholic priest, which of course raises questions about the nature of the novel. The theme of religion is not one that aims to preach; rather it’s a theme of journeys and self-discovery. And Chercover parallels that with the recovery of New Orleans.

Daniel is crushed when he discovers his uncle, a traveling revival preacher and the man who raised him, is not a man of faith. Tim Trinity is a con man, conning people out of money by abusing their religious beliefs. So Daniel joins the priesthood to find a miracle, to restore his faith, to discover exactly what it is he believes in.  

[And does it work?]
