The Life and Lies of Calamity Jane
In the Old West there were not individuals,
only characters. Calamity Jane was certainly
a character. For multiple generations she is
an icon because she is fluid. She can be modeled
into anything we want her to be… In Hollywood
she was depicted by the likes of
Jane Alexander, Doris Day, and Francis Farmer.
Her whole life, as she crafted and reinvented,
were lies she manufactured.
Researching Calamity Jane, to find the truth
about her, uncovered were truths that could
spawn more lies, and truths that sounded like lies.
Both, lies and truth were incorporated into this book.
Martha Jane Cannary
May 1, 1852-August 1, 1903
Bus Stop Bus Stop
BUS STOP BUS STOP is a rolling confessional of prose poems and written portraits of saints and sinners, of human compassion and human intolerance seen through the eyes of a singular transcontinental bus passenger.
On The Bright Side Of Down
He takes us on a road trip across the changing landscapes of time, styles and form. Grant takes us to the last stand of Johnny Ringo, to the back-road circuses and sideshows that pulled their wagons across the Great Plains and Prairies of the United States and Canada, and growing up in a small town where hopes are big, temptation out of reach and outcomes undetermined. The living, the dead and the inanimate get a chance to say their piece, sometimes deadpan and sometimes tongue- in-cheek, in this collection of writings of truths, half truths and lies.
Reality. Legend. Myth.
