Martha Canary, better known as Calamity Jane, was an American frontierswoman and professional scout. Born in Princeton, Missouri in 1852, Calamity Jane’s heroine persona was written into the romanticized accounts of the Wild West. Her legendary stories were the heart of the beloved Western Dime Novels, but were those gun-wielding, hard-drinking, daredevil tales fact or fiction? Listen as Calamity Jane, portrayed by storyteller Dianne Moran with music by Pat Frank, sets her record straight.
