In the territory south of Big Spring, west of Marathon, north of Terlingua, and east of El Paso, lived a southwestern Belle named Phoebe Clappesaddle. She had sweet Southern manners and tough Western skills. Acting like a lady never stopped her from being a good rancher. She could ride and rope anything, and she did. When three filthy brothers called the Tumbleweed Gang blew into town. It was up to Phoebe to teach them some manners and a few lessons in roping and riding too.
