welcome to your story
the Old West
in a new light
great voices on the Great Plains
it’s wild out here
heroines who talk back
liars, runaways and thieves

The Not So Quiet Life of Calamity Jane
by K. Lyn Wurth
"With colorful and authentic language, K. Lyn Wurth’s The Not So Quiet Life of Calamity Jane brings into focus this iconic historical figure. It’s an entertaining addition to the story of a fearless woman far ahead of her time!”
- Lucia St. Clair Robson, New York Times bestselling author of RIDE THE WIND
"Well researched and rich in period detail, the novel explores not only the legend that Martha Jane Cannary became, but the flawed woman behind the myth. . . . The Not So Quiet Life of Calamity Jane is a compelling read, and a ride worth taking.”
