Synopsis: Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Larry McMurtry rediscovered the myth of the Old West and gave it new life in books such as LONESOME DOVE and ANYTHING FOR BILLY. McMurtry once again looks to the Old West and brings to life the legendary Calamity Jane in BUFFALO GIRLS.
Calamity Jane is the West -- a larger than life figure, living in her friend Dora's cathouse in Miles City. Grown old and reclusive, she is content remembering the excitement of her past and relating it in letters to her daughter -- until old friend Buffalo Bill Cody and his Wild West Show come to town. Buffalo Bill makes Calamity an offer that she can't refuse -- a chance to relive her glory days.
"Calamity Jane is as real and as moving a heroine as Larry McMurtry has ever created." (Publisher's Source)
Product Description: Centred around the life of the legendary Calamity Jane, this novel from the author of "Lonesome Dove" and "Some Can Whistle", recreates the short, violent, passionate history of the Wild West.

Store Description: Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
