This is the story of how a young girl from Princeton, Missouri became the legendary Calamity Jane. An orphan at the age of fifteen, she dressed as a man to earn a man's wage. She was a bullwhacker, a nurse to the miners, a cook, maybe a scout for General Custer, and even possibly the wife of Wild Bill Hickock. Martha Jane Cannary, a.k.a. Calamity Jane, was one of the Old West's most colorful characters. Now you can hear her story from her point of view and learn about a time long forgotten. So catch the pioneer spirit and travel the Overland trail with Calamity Jane!
