Would you like to tell us about a lower price? If you are a seller for this product, would you like to suggest updates through seller support? The whooping crane rustlers are girls.

Yet their rebellion at the Rubber Rose Ranch is almost overshadowed by the arrival of the legendary Bleus Hankshaw, a white-trash goddess literally born to hitchhike, and the freest female of them all. 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.

Please try again later. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Tom Robbins’ masterful descriptive writing and the depth of his development of the main characters commend the novel, but the story, itself, borders on fantasy.

Whatever label I think of doesn’t quite fit, but it clearly lacks the realism of, say, a Cormac McCarthy novel. Since I prefer realism these days, the book only merits an average rating for purely reasons of personal taste. Robbins’ descriptive prowess deserves a higher score, however, so if you enjoy skilled word craft, I can recommend it.

One person found eve helpful. Ever since I bought this book,pretty well when it first reached Australia, it’s constituted one of the mainstays of my library.

That and the other Tom Robbins writings. Some books you can read many times throughout life tet each time find something wonderful in them. All of Mr Robbins books are like that. They delight, sadden, make laughter happen or burst forth, turn you on if you’re open to that and pop your cork. Just what you need in a book.

I never get tired of Tom Robbins.

I’ve read everything I could get my hands on but mostly many years ago. A good young friend reminded me of his genius as she was just eveb him for the first time, so I immediately downloaded this book. It is still wonderful in every way. I highlighted several sections – especially thw often bizarre but oh so spot on philosophy of the “Chink”. A Japanese seer called ‘the Chink’, a male tycoon called ‘countess’, and a babe with thumbs the size of canoes — what’s not to love?

I’ve read all Robbins’ works, many multiple times, and ‘Cowgirls’ is always a favorite to go back to. My parents think it’s foolish to read a book more than once — “What?

Did it have a different ending this time? The book is very different to what I read so far. Tom says he can spend a whole day on one sentence and his attention to the detail is felt from the book. The story is also good and it makes male readers to think differently about women’s feelings and behaviour.


I would be interested to know though if what Tom says is really what women think and do or whether it is just his male imagination. I first read this book almost 40 years ago. Robbins must have rewritten it during those years.

It was a totally different read this time. I’ve noticed that’s happened several times in the last few years with several authors I reread. I have also noticed that all of the authors wrote more clearly this time. Bluues wonder if anyone else has noticed this phenomenon. One of my favorite books – a classic. One of my favorites.

I keep buying it for friends with a sense of humor. See all reviews.
