More About Calamity Jane and Her Siblings by Jan Cerney
 
 
 
Overview
The mere mention of Calamity Jane conjures up images of buckskins, bull whips and dance halls, but there s more to the woman than the storied legend she became. Born Martha Canary, she was orphaned as a child and assumed the responsibility of caring for her siblings. Much too young and ambitious to rear a family, she found homes for all. After setting off on her own, Martha tried to reconnect with her fractured family in her typical haphazard fashion, all the while transforming into Calamity Jane. Soon, her own foibles and her siblings choices rendered the attempt futile. From brother Elijah s horse thieving to sister Lena s denial of Martha s tales, author Jan Cerney uncovers the tumultuous Canary family often overlooked in the Calamity canon."
