Description:

First trade paperback edition, published simultaneously with the hard cover; first printing, full number line. Inscribed and signed by the author on the half-title page: "For Claudia-- / The original cowgirl. / Keep in touch. / Tom Robbins." Robbins has a sister named Claudia but not plausible as inscribed to her--who says "Keep in touch" to a sister? Robbins (born 1936) forged a strong connection with the radical Boomers of the 1970s with this novel and "Still Life with Woodpecker," and has since remained true to his roots. Book is unmarked; slight spine slant. Hinge crease; spine is creased; some soiling. Mylar protected. Bookseller Inventory # 003485

About this title:

Synopsis: 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.

From the Inside Flap: Starring Sissy Hanshaw--flawlessly beautiful, almost. A small-town girl with big-time dreams and a quirk to match--hitchhiking her way into your heart, your hopes, and your sleeping bags...
Featuring Bonanza Jellybean and the smooth-riding cowgirls of Rubber Rose Ranch. Chink, lascivious guru of yams and yang. Julian, Mohawk by birth; asthmatic esthete and husband by disposition. Dr. Robbins, preventive psychiatrist and reality instructor...
Follow Sissy's amazing odyssey from Virginia to chic Manhattan to the Dakota Badlands, where FBI agents, cowgirls, and ecstatic whooping cranes explode in a deliciously drawn-out climax...
