Calamity Jane by Hortense Dufour Book Summary:

« Y aura-t-il seulement quelqu’un pour planter un cactus sur ma tombe ? » se demandait Calamity Jane au terme de sa vie. Ivre d’alcool, de chagrin, malade, aveugle, Martha Jane Cannary ne cessait de répéter cette phrase. Et de pleurer la solitude qui l’oppressait. Femme au destin hors du commun, celle que les Blancs surnommaient la « reine des plaines » et les Indiens le « diable blanc » suscite aujourd’hui encore de nombreuses interrogations et une admiration sans bornes.Détestant l’hypocrisie, cette aventurière fut tour à tour conductrice de diligences, convoyeuse de fonds, chercheuse d’or et joueuse de poker.Amoureuse de la route et des étreintes passionnées, cette femme hors normes décédée en 1902, à l’âge de 51 ans, partageait tout avec les plus pauvres. Loin de singer les hommes, même si elle leur ressemblait parfois, elle avait la jambe superbe, le regard sublime, une opulente chevelure auburn et l’attache féminine d’une main sachant utiliser avec grâce... une Winchester.

!--[if gte mso 9] Normal 0 21 false false false FR X-NONE X-NONE MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 ![endif]--!--[if gte mso 9] ![endif]--!--[if !mso] ![endif]--!--[if gte mso 10] ![endif]-- Martha Jane Canary, alias Calamity Jane, est sans doute une des figures les plus paradoxales du « Wild West ». Une figure, parce qu’elle est davantage une représentation mythique et légendaire qu’un personnage historique dont on pourrait sans faille tracer la biographie. Et paradoxale, puisque les récits qui forment sa légende montrent aussi bien la brutalité d’une existence livrée à la sauvagerie des espaces et à la barbarie des hommes que la détermination sans faille d’une femme qui s’est arrachée d’un destin tout tracé dans une très jeune Amérique puritaine. Les errances de Calamity Jane dessinent une vie sous une forme pure où tout acte est absolument déterminant en même temps qu’il est parfaitement gratuit. Extrait vidéo :

Calamity Jane

Calamity Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Calamity Jane by James D. McLaird Book Summary:

Forget Doris Day singing on the stagecoach. Forget Robin Weigert’s gritty portrayal on HBO’s Deadwood. The real Calamity Jane was someone the likes of whom you’ve never encountered. That is, until now. This book is a definitive biography of Martha Canary, the woman popularly known as Calamity Jane. Written by one of today’s foremost authorities on this notorious character, it is a meticulously researched account of how an alcoholic prostitute was transformed into a Wild West heroine. Always on the move across the northern plains, Martha was more camp follower than the scout of legend. A mother of two, she often found employment as waitress, laundress, or dance hall girl and was more likely to be wearing a dress than buckskin. But she was hard to ignore when she’d had a few drinks, and she exploited the aura of fame that dime novels created around her, even selling her autobiography and photos to tourists. Gun toting, swearing, hard drinking—Calamity Jane was all of these, to be sure. But whatever her flaws or foibles, James D. McLaird paints a compelling portrait of an unconventional woman who more than once turned the tables on those who sought to condemn or patronize her. He also includes dozens of photos—many never before seen—depicting Jane in her many guises. His book is a long-awaited biography of Martha Canary and the last word on Calamity Jane.

À la lisière de la fiction et du documentaire, l'art de François Beaune, l'auteur entre autres d'Un homme louche et d'Omar et Greg (prix du Réel 2019), en fait une foudroyante héroïne.

Calamity

Calamity Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Calamity by Joann Green Byrd Book Summary:

June 14, 1903, was a typical, hot Sunday in Heppner, a small farm town in northeastern Oregon. People went to church, ate dinner, and relaxed with family and friends. But late that afternoon, calamity struck when a violent thunderstorm brought heavy rain and hail to the mountains and bare hills south of town. When the fierce downpour reached Heppner, people gathered their children and hurried inside. Most everyone closed their doors and windows against the racket. The thunder and pounding hail masked the sound of something they likely could not have imagined: a roaring, two-story wall of water raging toward town. Within an hour, one of every five people in the prosperous town of 1,300 would lose their lives as the floodwaters pulled apart and carried away nearly everything in their path. The center of town was devastated. Enormous drifts of debris, tangled around bodies, snaked down the valley. The telegraph was down, the railroads were out, and the mayor was in Portland. Stunned survivors bent immediately to the dreadful tasks of searching for loved ones and carrying bodies to a makeshift morgue in the bank. By the next afternoon, thousands of individuals and communities had rushed to the town's aid, an outpouring of generosity that enabled the self-reliant citizens of Heppner to undertake the town's recovery. In Calamity, Joann Green Byrd, a native of eastern Oregon, carefully documents this poignant story, illustrating that even the smallest acts have consequences - good or bad. She draws on a wealth of primary sources, including a moving collection of photographs, to paint a rare picture of how a small town in the West coped with disaster at the turn of the twentieth century.

Calamity by Libbie Hawker Book Summary:

Her name is synonymous with the West. Her celebrity has spread to the East Coast and California, traveling down the new-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 bestselling author of The Ragged Edge of Night takes the reader 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. Editorial note: In pursuit of a narrative voice faithful to the central character, this text employs deliberate misuse of grammar and occasional misspellings. These are the author’s intentional stylistic choices and should not be interpreted as a lack of editing. Readers are encouraged to use the “Look Inside” feature before purchasing.

The Life and Legends of Calamity Jane

Calamity Pdf [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Life and Legends of Calamity Jane by Richard W. Etulain Book Summary:

Everyone knows the name Calamity Jane. Scores of dime novels and movie and TV Westerns have portrayed this original Wild West woman as an adventuresome, gun-toting hellion. Although Calamity Jane has probably been written about more than any other woman of the nineteenth-century American West, fiction and legend have largely obscured the facts of her life. This lively, concise, and exhaustively researched biography traces the real person from the Missouri farm where she was born in 1856 through the development of her notorious persona as a Wild West heroine. Before Calamity Jane became a legend, she was Martha Canary, orphaned when she was only eleven years old. From a young age she traveled fearlessly, worked with men, smoked, chewed tobacco, and drank. By the time she arrived in the boomtown of Deadwood, South Dakota, in 1876, she had become Calamity Jane, and the real Martha Canary had disappeared under a landslide of purple prose. Calamity became a hostess and dancer in Deadwood’s saloons and theaters. She imbibed heavily, and she might have been a prostitute, but she had other qualities, as well, including those of an angel of mercy who ministered to the sick and the down-and-out. Journalists and dime novelists couldn’t get enough of either version, nor, in the following century, could filmmakers. Sorting through the stories, veteran western historian Richard W. Etulain’s account begins with a biography that offers new information on Calamity’s several “husbands” (including one she legally married), her two children, and a woman who claimed to be the daughter of Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity, a story Etulain discredits. In the second half of the book, Etulain traces the stories that have shaped Calamity Jane’s reputation. Some Calamity portraits, he says, suggest that she aspired to a quiet life with a husband and family. As the 2004–2006 HBO series Deadwood makes clear, well more than a century after her first appearance as a heroine in the Deadwood Dick dime novels, Calamity Jane lives on—raunchy, unabashed, contradictory, and ambiguous as ever.
