Summary "Calamity Jane follows the life of Martha Jane Cannary, a nineteenth-century woman who went from penniless orphan to one of the most famous figures of the American West. In an era when women had few options in life, Calamity Jane had the audacity to carve them out for herself. The gun-toting, tough-talking, hard-drinking woman embodied the Western American spirit."--Provided by publisher.
