It’s like any other ABC book you can find…..
I adore this jackrabbit.
Skinny sucker, aint he? He’s scattered all through the book.
Ramrod = Jason
Tenderfoot = Angel
Ewe = Range maggots according to Jason, but I’m still getting some…..someday!
And chickens too!
Oldtimer = Jason in about 6 months!
Filly = a good looking girl.
And maybe, just maybe, it fosters substance abuse a bit much, for a children’s book I mean, not that there’s anything wrong with that.
Drinking and Driving, why not?
It was probably this book that kicked off the need for the DARE to keep kids off drugs programs.
More good advice: Blow all your money on your addictions.

Have a cigarette!
It fixes it all.

Maybe the library was just getting rid of it because of its copyright date. Or maybe kids never checked it out because it didn’t have wizards or avatars or sparkly princesses in it. Or maybe it is a bit inappropriate in a public school in a politically correct era.
I love it.
I can’t wait to read it to my grandchildren.
Luuuucccccyyyyyyy!!! You got some ‘splainin’ to do!
This book has a new copyright date of 1990 and from what I can tell, its a revised edition.
