Read the stories that started it all!
You won't want to miss this hilarious collection of stories from the author who brought you "Hank the Cowdog"!
Believe it or not, Hank the Cowdog was just one of many endearing characters who made their debut in this early collection of short-stories. In 1982, John R. Erickson compiled his funniest fiction writings into a book he titled, "The Devil in Texas", and released it to his local community. From there, the encouragement he received inspired him to develop one particular character, Hank the Cowdog, who quickly became a literary hero in his own right.
And, if you love Hank, you're in for a treat! In these stories, you'll get inside the head of an ornery bronc who's about to be saddle-broke, read the journal of a spunky ranch wife who has to find creative ways to get the cowboys to help her around the homestead, and gain some comical insights into what a cowboy's work really involves - the unglamorous side!
You'll see why USA Today called Erickson's writings "the best family entertainment in years"!
