Deadwood Dick's Doom; or, Calamity Jane's Last Adventure

Edward L. WHEELER (1855 - 1885)

This western, published around 1899, is a dime novel that has it all: roguish gun men, hostile Indians, chilvarous gentlemen to protect the hapless females, and - in Calamity Jane - even a female who can hold her own. The fictional character of the hero, Deadwood Dick, appeared in more than a hundred stories and became so famous the name was claimed by several men who actually lived in Deadwood, South Dakota.
