After his many years as a typical bachelor cowboy, Slim Chance is convinced—against his will — that he needs to build his own herd of cattle and invest in the future. So, he takes the plunge, takes out a loan, and takes his newly-bought heifers to a pasture on Viola’s father’s ranch. But, just about the time his new herd is calved-out and his investment is beginning to look promising, the dry and windy weather conditions put the entire county on High Alert for fire-danger. Hank is sure that he and Slim can defend the ranch against anything that comes their way, that is, until they come face-to-face with a wild fire unlike any grass fire they’ve seen before. Will Slim be able to get the cattle to safety in time? And, more importantly, what about Slim himself? You won’t want to miss this hair-raising and heart-warming tale of cowboy-bravery, true heroism, and the blessings of friends and community!
Pete the Barncat isn't known for his reliable story-telling, but when his report about a strange, tree-devouring creature is corroborated by another source namely J.T. Cluck, the ranch's head rooster Hank decides to investigate. However, just as the plot begins to thicken, Pete claims that it was all a joke and that the creature, a Three-Toed Tree Sloth, was really just a porcupine! Fortunately, Hank realizes that that's just what a sneaky cat would say to throw him off the trail, and his continued investigation soon leads him to a strange, bumbling little creature the Tree Sloth at last!
With the finely-tuned instincts of a Head of Ranch Security, Hank realizes that he must arrest this intruder! However, things don't turn out quite like he'd planned, and Hank soon has a very serious problem on his hands...

From the Preface by John R. Erickson:
"Hank has become a popular fellow. We have sold over nine million books about his adventures, and we are now hearing from second and third generation Hank fans. They, too, are curious. They want to know...who is Hank? Where did he come from and how did all of this come about?
In Q&A sessions and in replies to fan letters, I'm not able to address those questions in the manner they deserve because the answers are not always short or simple. They require a bigger canvas and that is the purpose of this book."
There are fun and interesting answers to questions about where characters in the Hank series came from, got their names, are any based on real animals or people, growing up in Perryton, recording Hank on audio books, Hank songs, where do story ideas come from and so many more questions? Packed full with color illustrations and pictures, this behind-the pages book is the ultimate gift for Hank the Cowdog fans and readers.
