Porch talk


Howdy, Hank fans! We hope you've already had a chance to read John R. Erickson's latest book, Porch Talk. But, if you haven't, it would be a great addition to your summer reading list!!

From the Austin American-Statesman:

"A glance at the cover of this book assures you that it will be an amusing and illuminating read. After all, one of the two authors of this volume on Texas archaeology, Erickson, is the creative spirit behind the "Hank the Cowdog" book series...

...He sets up the stories of the finds on his M-Cross Ranch as a back-and-forth between him and the more scientifically trained Boyd. What they found over the years is amazing. Not just arrow points, knives, shards, scrapers and burnt daubs from different eras, but also burial sites, underground storage pits and homes."
