Hi everyone,
From the Iron Marshal by Louis L'Amour:
Shanaghy was sleeping in a train gondola, then came a railroad detective
who threatened-with his gun-that he'd shot him if he didn't get off the moving train.
He turned and swung over the edge of the open gondola, hung for an instant to
gauge the speed, then dropped from the ladder.He hit the ground knees bent and rolled
head over heels down the embankment
Is it "knees bent and rolled" or "knees bent and rolled head over heels"

Thanks.
