Calamity Jane: Courageous Wild West Woman
Enslow Publishing, LLC, Jan 1, 2013 - Juvenile Nonfiction - 48 pages
What was Calamity Jane's real name? Was she a horse thief and a preacher's daughter? Did she actually serve under General George Custer? The truth and myth are difficult to separate in the wild life of Calamity Jane. An independent spirit, she never stayed in one place for long. She worked as a gold prospector, bullwhacker, nurse, and had many other jobs. Calamity Jane refused to conform to the typical roles of nineteenth-century women. Authors William R. Sanford and Carl R. Green reveal the true story of this legendary American figure.
