As Miette makes her way to Deadwood, South Dakota, history and myth collide to create a picture of a remarkable woman who shattered the expectations of her time, and a daughter who must confront the truth of her past. As in Billy the Kid or HBO’s Deadwood, In Calamity’s Wake blends fiction with real conversations and events to transport us, through vividly crafted atmosphere and seductive storytelling, to a side of the Wild West we’ve never seen before.Praise for In Calamitys WakeEchoes of Billy the Kid by Michael Ondaatje and Away by Amy Bloom reverberate in Natalee Caples brilliant poetic novel about the daughter of Calamity Jane seeking her mother.

Susan Swan, author of The Western Light“Haunting and hallucinatory, Natalee Caplee’s In Calamity’s Wake is a rich collage of sweeping myth and searing historical detail. Packed with the requisite big skies, barroom raconteurs and bullet wounds of an epic western, the story of Miette and Calamity Jane is also personal and timeless, echoing our own, futile attempts to know and understand even the people we love.

This novel will have you asking What is true? What is legend? long after the fire is out and the embers gone cold.” Miranda Hill, author of Sleeping FunnyEloquent, earthy and evocative, this gorgeously-written, dream-like novel is a delight. Caples voice is enchanting and her perspective on the mythology of Calamity Jane enthralling. Lauren B. Davis, author of Our Daily Bread
