It's summertime, and the weather on Hank's West Texas ranch is hot and dry. So dry, in fact, that everyone is on the lookout for prairie fires. So Hank bravely adds the title of Head of Fire Safety to his already impressive list of responsibilities and gets to work.
But patrolling for fires is dull, and it's hard to do on an empty stomach. Despite the distractions - desperate hunger, a cruel trick at the hands of Pete the Barncat - Hank somehow manages to stay focused on the job at hand. And it's a good thing he does, because sure enough, things on the ranch start to heat up!
Hank sings a song about "Chickens", and later he follows the sound of buzzards, singing, "Call in the Dogs, Put Out the Fire".
This is my favorite Hank the Cowdog book ever! Lightning! Fire! Love it! Hank! Hank!
Hank the Cow Dog is a fun series of books. Erickson continues his fun telling of Hanks escapades. Fun interaction of animals.
