about this book

Sissy Hanshaw is a small-town girl with big-time dreams and a quirk to match–hitchhiking her way into readers’ hearts. 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; and Dr. Robbins, preventive psychiatrist and reality instructor. They all 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.
