Read full description of the books:
Hank’s in trouble with a burrowing owl, a Doberman Pincher and the dreaded Eye-crosserosis. And again, he must tolerate airheads, birdbrains, clodpolls, dimwits, ignoramuses, and jackasses. Well actually, no donkeys in this story.
Say what you want to about Dickens, Tolstoy, Hemmingway or Nicholas Sparks. I’ll take John R. Erickson every time. Pure genius.
“ … You might say I run the ranch. So my opinion carries a little weight.”
“Ah, so you run this ranch?”
“Yes ma’am, and have for several years. …”
“I see. Do you make the sun rise?”
“Uh … not exactly.”
“Do you tell the trees when to shed their leaves?”
“Well … no
“Did you teach the fish to swim?”

Closing P. 127:
Those of us who live on the heights must live with the judgments of small minds. We can only hope that in the next life justice will reign.
It reigns here, but it also hails.
Beautiful!! Eat your heart out Margaret Atwood.

Read information about the authorJohn R. Erickson, a former cowboy and ranch manager, is gifted with a storyteller's knack for spinning a yarn. Through the eyes of Hank the Cowdog, a smelly, smart-aleck Head of Ranch Security, Erickson gives readers a glimpse of daily life on a ranch in the West Texas Panhandle. This series of books and tapes is in school libraries across the country, has sold more than 7.6 million copies, is a Book-of-the-Month Club selection, and is the winner of the 1993 Audie for Outstanding Children's Series from the Audio Publisher's Association. Publishers Weekly calls Hank a "grassroots publishing phenomena," and USA Today says this is "the best family entertainment in years."
Hank the Cowdog made his debut in the pages of The Cattleman, a magazine for adults, and when Erickson started getting "Dear Hank" letters, he knew he was onto something. So in 1983, he self-published 2,000 copies of The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog, and they sold out in 6 weeks.
When teachers began inviting Erickson to their schools, Hank found his most eager fans. Teachers, librarians, and students alike love Hank. According to some Texas Library Association surveys, the Hank the Cowdog books are the most popular selections in many libraries' children's sections. The lively characters make excellent material for reading and writing lessons, and turn even the most reluctant readers into avid Hank-fans.
Erickson was born in Midland, Texas, but by the age of 3, he had moved with his family to Perryton, Texas, where he and his wife live today on their working cattle ranch. They have 3 grown children and 4 grandchildren. His advice to young writers is, "Write about something you know. Try to leave your readers better off than they were before."
