Description

This work provides factual accounts of women of the Old West in contrast to their depictions on film and in fiction. The lives of Martha ""Calamity Jane"" Canary and Belle ""The Bandit Queen"" Starr are first detailed; one discovers that Starr was indeed friends with notorious bank robbers of the time, including Jesse James and Cole Younger, but was herself primarily a cattle and horse thief. Wives and lovers of some of the West's most famous outlaws are covered in the second section along with real-life female entertainers, prostitutes and gamblers. Native Americans, entrepreneurs, doctors, reformers, artists, writers, schoolteachers, and other such ""respectable"" women are covered in the third section.
