Hop-A-Long Book


Hop-a-long and his sister Jumping Jack leap across the mesa and get into plenty of mischief. On moonlit nights, Jumping Jack likes to hop on the smooth sand beside the mesquite. And Hop-a-long prowls the mesa, spying on his prairie dog friends and hiding from Hungry Owl. 

First published between 1943 and 1949 and now available again from the University of New Mexico Press, the seven books in the Mesaland Series, several which are available at Luna & Luz, introduce a new generation of readers to the animals and plants of the great Southwest.
