Publisher's Summary

Her name is synonymous with the West. Her celebrity has spread to the East Coast and California, traveling down the newly laid railroads and along the telegraph wire.  

But breathless tales of Calamity Jane bear little resemblance to the truth. As she senses death coming closer, the legendary hellcat longs to set the record straight - to reveal her life story at last, unclouded by legend, every sin and failing laid bare. Only then can she hope to rest in peace.  

In a Deadwood saloon, she finds a writer willing to hear her out and recount the truth to a public hungry for more tales of Calamity Jane....

So begins Libbie Hawker’s expansive biographical novel, an intimate portrait of one of the best-known yet least-understood women of the American frontier. The international best-selling author of The Ragged Edge of Night takes the listener on a heart-rending journey through a landscape lost to time, as seen through the eyes of one outcast woman. Calamity is a haunting meditation on hardship, unrequited love, and the stark, affecting beauty of the American West.

Wonderfully narrated!

This is already a beautiful, vividly written novel but the narration brings it to a whole new level! It’s hard to believe this is an indie published and produced book. Really well done. Very exciting and interesting listen!
