Re-Reading Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn and Chee Series

I love reading mysteries set in the place I am or will be going on vacation. Now that we're back in New Mexico, I've decided to re-read Tony Hillerman's Leaphorn and Chee series. It has been so long since I read most of them and I'd bet I missed a book or two. I don't have any particular timeframe for this endeavor, I'll start at Book #1 and move forward based on my time and availability of the books from my library. 

I love Dark Winds, the TV series based on the books and am looking forward to the third season. Rereading the books will allow me to see more from the television show, I assume.

I met and interviewed Tony Hillerman many years ago while I attended the Taos Writer's Workshop. where he was the keynote speaker. Maybe I'll see if I can find my notes for that conversation and post it here on the blog. He was funny, gracious, and kind. 

I'm finishing the newest book in the Leaphorn and Chee series, now Leaphorn, Chee, and Manuelito series, written by Tony's daughter, Anne Hillerman called, The Way of the Bear. I like the character development Anne has chosen for Bernadette Manuelito - she's stronger. More about the newer books later!
