How Tony Hillerman Got His Start

Yes, it’s Tony Hillerman from his first youthful stories as a cub reporter. He was amazing from the very beginning, when no one knew his name other than the local readers. Immediately, you feel the same quick-witted, careful observation that’s part of his novels; but also, his warmth, humility, humor, and love of New Mexico.

This edition of The Great Taos Bank Robbery has even more stories than the first release, and a foreword written by Hillerman's daughter, who is just as enchanting as her father.

An entertaining book for exploring the southwest

A few months ago I stumbled upon Dead Run, which led me to Tony Hillerman as I decided it was time to explore and relearn the desert southwest I played in twenty years ago. The Great Taos Bank Robbery is a collection of essays that run the gamut of local politics, local history and modern epidemiology. Somehow the stories connect well because of the land they're centered on, despite exploring many different topics over many centuries (and millennia) of human history.

The author does a great job of keeping things light, entertaining, but still informs and educates. Gotta love that blend.
