The amazing thing about reading this short auto-biography is that SHE ACTUALLY EXISTED. It reads like all the spaghetti western books, serials, and movies over time but is word for word true. For example how she, Martha Jane Cannary (later Burke), got her name after a battle with Indians (Native Americans as we now correctly call them) where her Captain (Capt Egan) was shot and almost fell off his horse when she turned around heading back toward the battle rescuing him and returning him to safety. Just like something out of a movie. She was the real deal and was well respected by all. Well all except the Native Americans she shot and killed by the dozen. It’s okay P.C people; it was en vogue at the time and completely acceptable behaviour. She was constantly on the move and hung out with the likes of General Custard and Wild Bill Hickok. It’s a story that all women who are aspiring frontiers woman and possibly butch lesbians everywhere.
