Hank: Murder in the Middle Pasture
This episode of Hank (Head of Ranch Security) was particularly hilar … riveting.
Ya’see Hank not only had to deal with the usual dangers of an upper echelon cowdog but the winter weather of the Texas Panhandle. As the cowboys of the XIT Ranch put it, “… only barbed wire stood between the High Plains and the North Pole.”
It’s a spine tingling tale about the fate of a security animal hanging among savage coyotes, a vicious pack of wild dogs, buzzards, murder, and a princess.
Also, there are the educational aspects of Murder in the Middle Pasture. Hanks vocabulary really comes out in this novel – words like Pre-Visitation Dreameration and Reversible Argumenterrogation. ‘Course if you are not into intense spy thrillers and espionage, like me, a lot of this book will go over your head.
Go ahead. Give it a read. If you dare.

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."
