Buffalo Girls, by Larry McMurty
Read and reviewed in January, 2003
According to the back cover, "Larry McMurtry returns to the territory of . . .Lonesome Dove to sing the song of Calamity Jane's last ride, as Buffalo Bill Cody convinces Martha Jane and a handful of the West's aging legends to travel to London with his Wild West Show. - - -
It is a great book, sometimes funny, sometimes melancholy. Calamity Jane was an interesting, eccentric, and tragic character. This book, which is a fictional account of the last years of her life, has made me curious to know more about her.
I have sent it to a bookcrosser in the "wild west," New Mexico.
