THE RANCH IS SECURE WITH HANK IS ON THE SCENE
A chicken's been murdered. All clues lead him to conclude that it's the work of the coyotes but Hank, head cowdog security at the ranch, can't seem to catch those darn coyotes. Of course they are not the only ones longing for a chicken dinner, but Hank's got to be better than those wild cousins of his. One night, after another chicken's been mauled, Hank just couldn't resist anymore and gave in to his baser instincts and wakes up with a mouthful of feathers. Caught red-mouthed full of blood and feathers, and feeling unappreciated, he sets off for the canyons to live the life of a barbarian. He falls in with the pack of unsavory coyotes and must prove his courage and win the paw of the beautiful chief's daughter.
The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog by John Erickson is the first book in this fun mystery adventure series set on a Texas ranch where the security team sometimes prefer naps over work .
