Meet the Author

John R. Erickson is the author of the popular Hank the Cowdog series, described by USA Today as “the best family entertainment in years.” Erickson lives on his own 8,500-acre ranch, which straddles the majestic Canadian River canyon in the Texas Panhandle. Eleven miles from the nearest paved road, he leads a cowboy’s life riding the range on horseback, mending fences, and tending to his herd of cows, calves, and Bonsmara bulls. But, before the ranch work starts, John rises at 5:30 a.m. to write. The idea for Moonshiner’s Gold began to form when he and his son Mark discovered the remains of seven moonshine stills of their property, which they believe operated during Prohibition. The author of more than forty books for young readers, Erickson lives with his wife, Kris, near his boyhood home of Perryton, Texas.
