Publisher's Summary

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. 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 he and Slim can defend the ranch against anything that comes their way...that is, until they come face-to-face with a wildfire unlike any grass fire they’ve seen before. 

Will they be able to get the cattle to safety in time? 

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! In this adventure, hear Drover’s hilarious little “Marsh Berries” song, as well as a touching tribute to fire victims that Viola hears on the radio, “Together in This”, sung by guest artist Comanche Moon.

Can't get enough of Ole Hanky. Another Classic

Absolutely love Hank and his unforgettable point of view. Have to say this almost brought a tear or 2 to my eyes. Sweet and endearing. Funny and such a great example of how people rally together through hard times.
