For 12-year old Eugene  Appleton, life in the frontier town of Rattlesnake Junction swerves into unexpected territory with the arrival of Tumbleweed Thompson, a gangly, banjo-pickin’ drifter with tales of whaling in the Atlantic and ice fishing with the Inuits. The adventures of Tumbleweed and Eugene are inspired by a lifelong love of tales of mischief and mayhem, such as Robert McCloskey’s Centerburg Tales, Richard Peck’s A Year Down Yonder, and of course, Mark Twain.
