John Erickson Entertains with Music and Some Ranch Wisdom

John Erickson, author of the famed Hank the Cowdog series, made his appearance at the Lubbock Memorial Civic Center on Friday to sing, read and talk to students about the inspiration behind his beloved books. After his performance, students roamed about a series of stations where they learned about ranch history and wildlife. The National Ranching Heritage Center teamed up with the National Cowboy Symposium to host the event in celebration of the release of Erickson's third book in the Ranch Life Series: Ranch Wildlife.
