Hunting Badger Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Hunting Badger

       In “Hunting Badger,” author Tony Hillerman's latest Leaphorn and Chee mystery once again captures, with vivid description, riveting detail, exciting plot, and superb characterization, life on and about the Navajo reservation. Hillerman's Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee team up once again to solve a crime in the Four Corners canyons. Hillerman takes a real-life crime (In 1998 three “survivalists” steal a truck, murder a policeman, and then disappear. The FBI and other law organizations fail in their investigations.) and adapts it to his own fictional form. “Hunting Badger” takes us in and around and through the ins and outs of that area before finally climaxing in triumph for Leaphorn and Chee, not to mention Hillerman. This is perhaps his most suspenseful book in some time. It's good to have Hillerman back!
