Did you know that Walt Longmire isn’t the only crime fighter in Wyoming with a book series? Joe Pickett has one too.
Who is Joe Pickett?
Created by Charles James Box, Jr. – or C.J. Box -, Joe Pickett first appeared in the 2001 novel Open Season. He is the new game warden in Twelve Sleep, Wyoming, a town where nearly everyone hunts and the game warden – especially one like Joe who won’t take bribes or look the other way – is far from popular.
Like it is written on Box website, over that time, he’s taken on environmental terrorists, rogue federal land managers, animal mutilators, crazed cowboy hitmen, corrupt bureaucrats, homicidal animal rights advocates, and violent dysfunctional families.
