Synopsis

Every legend has to start somewhere. Twelve-year-old Calamity Jane and her mother are on their way to California when they find themselves in the beleaguered town of Hoopersville. With all but a trio of townsfolk kidnapped by the hilariously hair-raising hoopsnakes, can Calamity Jane rally the remaining townspeople out of their hidey-holes to face the Hoopsnake Queen and rescue the populace? Or will they too end up as dinner-in-waiting? And most importantly, will there be pie?
