A band of ruthless coyotes are happy to teach Hank the trade. Will Hank be forced to raid his own ranch?

    Story
    "Hank: a timeless chuckle for families everywhere."

    Hank the Cowdog is an old series of books. The first, "The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog" was first introduced to my family as an attempt on my father's part to make mini road trip in a minivan packed with bored children more tolerable. The result was that it was an instant staple for future road trips and remembered with fondness today even after most of my siblings now have children of their own.

    I purchased and listened to this audiobook out of fond memories of the stories and the family trips associated with them, but was surprised at how well Hank the Cowdog held up. The setting, comical tone, the language, and narration are still great and timeless.

    Hank, a dog that believes he is the head of security on a dusty ranch, has many ridiculous adventures with colorful characters while he attempts to protect the ranch in his own often misguided or misunderstood ways. In this story, he tries to solve a chicken "murder" and catch those who raided the chicken coop, only stumble into more and more giggle inducing trouble as he does so.

    Like an old Disney movie, Hank's audience is everyone of all ages with laughs for anyone who listens. A mom and pop are just as likely to burst out in a chuckle as the kids or the grandparents. A great way to entertain a family on a long drive. I speak from experience.

    "Another Perennial Favorite"

    Hank is falsely accused of the ultimate crime for a ranch dog -- chicken killing! Hank's adventures will intrigue pre-teens and entertain them even on a long trip across the wilds of Wyoming.
