Collection of letters from the Western Trail Museum in Billings, Montana, previously published by Nolie Mumey and Don & Stella Foote. Not listed by Ramon Adams in Six-Guns and Saddle Letters, but the Foote edition is. Approximately 45 pages, several small illustrations. Noted for her self-promotion, Calamity's autobiographical accounts are mostly exagerated or false. As noted by Adams, "Though she was nearing the end of her life, she still seemed to have a weakness for telling tall tales." Still, a scarce transcription of important western americana. Owner's name on title page, and small bookstore sticker on rear cover.
