Publisher's Summary

Stakeout in the canyon. Someone has been stealing calves from Uncle Johnny's pasture, and it's up to Hank and Slim to put a stop to it. In the hopes of catching the "crinimals" in the act, they set up camp in the field just north of the canyon. But the stakeout isn't all fun and games. Before the rustlers even make an appearance, Hank must overcome the poisoned weenies, weather a run-in with a larger-than life guard dog, and survive a tussle with the dreaded coyote brothers. But despite all the distraction, when the time comes to nab the calf-snitchers, everyone's favorite Head of Ranch Security is there to do the job.

Hear two songs - "See the Morning Sun Ascending" and "Alas and Alack".

Hot dog: Don't miss out on any of Hank the Cowdog's adventures.

Funny. Funnier. Funniest!!

Where does The Case of the Midnight Rustler rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Our family has been a fan of these audio books since the 1980's. They are delightful and entertaining to us adults and to kids of all ages. The characters are entertaining. John Erickson is the author and also a terrific voice actor. He truly understands the mind - and heart - of a dog!! His stories have a rich plot full of great characters, lots of wit and humor. Hank has a very inflated idea of his position on the ranch and is always in scrapes which he gets out of by sheer luck or pure bumbling. These are great to listen to in the car, on long trips. at bedtime... We wore our tapes out and went to CDs and now we have them on the computer through Audible. You will not go wrong starting with book 1 and just adding to your collection a book at a time!

Can't wait to get another one!!!

Loved it! Hank is so awesome. The whole book was a gut buster. Particularly liked the episode with the coyotes.
