Books aren’t just words, they are filled with places and people to meet. You even get to meet some groovy dogs in books.
“Hickory Doc’s Tales” follows the experiences of a hunting dog named Chicoree’s Hickory Doc. Oftentimes referred to as “Doc,” the oldest and wisest of five dogs residing at “The Lazy Dog Hacienda Kennels” in Oklahoma. Doc chronicles his adventures and life in the field and at the kennel, as well as his interactions with humans and other animals. Geared toward elementary school readers, “Hickory Doc’s Tales” will help children transition into chapter books and more adventurous literature.
The Harkey family has lived with various breeds of hunting dogs for over 30 years. In that time, Linda Harkey has developed four deep passions: a love of German Short Haired Pointers, Labrador Retrievers, nature, and education. Harkey combines her personal knowledge of hunting dogs with her desire to encourage children to read in “Hickory Doc’s Tales, The Pack: First Generation.”
