Rate this:
The whooping crane rustlers are girls. Young girls. Cowgirls, as a matter of fact, all "bursting with dimples and hormones"--and the FBI has never seen anything quite like them. Yet their rebellion at the Rubber Rose Ranch is almost overshadowed by the arrival of the legendary Sissy Hankshaw, a white-trash goddess literally born to hitchhike, and the freest female of them all.

Freedom, its prizes and its prices, is a major theme of Tom Robbins's classic tale of eccentric adventure. As his robust characters attempt to turn the tables on fate, the reader is drawn along on a tragicomic joyride across the badlands of sexuality, wild rivers of language, and the frontiers of the mind.

Interesting book...

Robbins' prose is unbelievably creative. His metaphors and similes will shock you with how creative and app they are. He's certainly out there, but don't hesitate to follow.

This was the first Tom Robbins book I read, and I've been in love with is writing ever since. Its unlike anything I've ever read!
