Publisher's Summary

Sissy Hankshaw, an almost flawlessly beautiful small-town girl with big-time dreams, hitchhikes her way into your heart, your hopes, and your sleeping bag in Tom Robbins's magical, funny, and most famous novel. 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. Along the way, you'll meet such unforgettable characters as Bonanza Jellybean and the smooth-riding cowgirls of Rubber Rose Ranch; Chink, the lascivious guru of yams and yang; Julian, an asthmatic Mohawk; and Dr. Robbins, the preventive psychiatrist and reality instructor. Even Cowgirls Get the Blues is Tom Robbins at his offbeat, outrageous, and inventive best.


What the Critics Say

"This is one of those special novels - a piece of working magic, warm, funny, and sane - that you just want to ride off into the sunset with." (Thomas Pynchon)

Strange, quere, excellent

My first contact to the work of Tom Robbins. What a interesting and funny story. A sinphony of words where one is tempted to rewind or pause often to comprehend the authors thoughts. Irving meets Djian, meets Kotzwinkle... just great!!
