One of THE best storytellers. Delightful!

What made the experience of listening to The Case of the Wounded Buzzard on Christmas Eve the most enjoyable?

One of our favorites of the entire series! We started with book 1 and ended up with a couple of dozen since the 1980's. Our tapes literally eroded so we got some CDs and now have them here through Audible where they never will scratch or degrade! John Erickson is a master storyteller and a superb voice actor. His wit, humor, malapropisms and spoonerisms of Hank have the adults laughing and the kids get hysterical over the various scrapes Hank gets himself into. These stories started out for adults, in a magazine for cowboys for 17 years. But they are terrific for the kiddies too. There is always a moral woven through the story. He also has plumbed the heart and mind of dogs!!
