When Rancher Hicks drives 84 miles to Sleepy Gulch for excitement, his wife Elna misses the 12-year-old wanted posters in the post office, a never-ending checker game, and hot-spot Millie's Luncheonette. Meanwhile back at the ranch, all that happens is Elna strikes oil, inherits a fortune, and is visited by the President. Never has the West been wilder or funnier. A Reading Rainbow Feature Selection. Full-color illustrations.
