    For decades, Charlie Flagg has eked out a living by raising cattle and sheep on his modest Texas ranch. Hardworking and old-fashioned, he distrusts federal programs that claim to help struggling farmers and ranchers. But as rainless years continue and others sell their souls for federal handouts, Charlie finds himself under increasing pressure to compromise his principles - and surrender his freedom.

    When robbing a bank in the wrong town made Tom McLean a notorious man, the only way to survive was to run. But he had been in this type of predicament before, and he knew what to do. The posse close behind him meant to see he never made the border. They wanted him bad. But it wasn't to be, for McLean had a good horse under him and a head start.

    What did you love best about Legend of the Tumbleweed?

    This, like other Jonas books, you will get to know and like the characters. Tom Mclean is a likable character for sure.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommend Kirby Jonas stories to anyone who likes to be taken away from reality for a while each day. His books have memorable characters, a good story line, and good dialogue.
