Spirit of Steamboat: A Walt Longmire Story
Craig Johnson
2013, 146 pages
On Christmas Eve 1988, lawman Walt Longmire convinces his friend, the irascible former sheriff Lucian Connally, that he needs him to fly an emergency mission. A young Asian girl has been badly burned in a car crash and needs to be airlifted to Denver in a blizzard. Lucian has already had three glasses of bourbon, but he is the only pilot who can fly Steamboat, a decommissioned World War II bomber. And Steamboat is the only plane that might have a chance to make it. Five adults risk their lives in this harrowing journey to try and save the critically injured young girl. Their chances of survival are slim at best. But they have to try. Will the “Spirit of Steamboat” produce a miracle?
