Chief Snow is a young police chief in the remote Alaska bush village of Togiak. After a plane crash strands him in the frozen bush, he begins investigating a suspicious suicide of a man in the local village. Bush Blues is stark, realistic, and humorous look, not only of the life of a police officer out on the edge of civilization, but also of the people who live 'off the grid'.
"There is a chilling honesty to Sheldon Schmitt’s Bush Blues, like the snapping of a twig or the charging of a shotgun in the crisp Alaska air.”
-- Tom Begich, Alsaka Senator
"Bush Blues marks the debut of an Alaskan crime solver as true and flawed as the state itself."
