Cannary, better known as Calamity Jane, was a prostitute in various western towns during the late 19th century. She was a colorful character who dressed as a man, was a wild drinker and carried and used a gun as well as most men. She developed a strong friendship with Wild Bill Hickock in Deadwood, South Dakota, where she spent most of her time. She appeared in numerous dime novels of the time and toured with Buffalo Bill's Wild West show in the late 1890's. She published a very short autobiography in 1900.
