John R Erickson


West Texas author John Erickson is a man who knows of what he writes. His HANK THE COWDOG books, set on a sprawling ranch and inhabited by a crew of motley cowboys and critters, are based on many years of his own experiences.

Erickson was born and raised in West Texas, attended the University of Texas and then spent two years at the Harvard Divinity School in Massachusetts. When he returned to his home state in the late 1960's, he began publishing short stories while working full-time as a cowboy, farmer, and ranch manager. Hank and his sidekick Drover, the bumbling pooches who star in Erickson's best-selling series, were actual dogs Erickson worked with. His skillful mixing of true-life experience, out-and-out silliness, and adventure has gained Hank a faithful following of children and adults alike.
