Tony Hillerman.

Sad news to start the week as word has come that the wonderful writer, Tony Hillerman, has died at age 83.

One of my favorite authors, I first read Hillerman when his breakthrough book Skinwalkers was published. I was hooked; I went back and read all his previous novels and eagerly anticipated each new book featuring Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee. It is truly sad news to receive, but it is good to know that his books will live on and provide many others with hours of entertainment and an introduction to the culture and setting of the American Southwest and the Navajo people. Not a bad legacy.
