They met in a New Orleans alleyway in the dark days following the Civil War. His name was Philippe St. Andre - a peace officer - and he was in the process of being beaten up by a gang of hardcases. Her name was Martha Jane Canary, and with a few unladylike tricks she dispersed the thugs with an ease that belied her boyish appearance.
That meeting proved providential for the good citizens of New Orleans and fatal for the maniacal killer who had been terrorising the streets of the city. Already seven girls had fallen into the clutches of the notorious "Strangler".
What the police needed was a girl with courage enough to act as bait for the killer, and who better, through St.Andre, than the slim girl who had saved his life and who was known throughout the West as Calamity Jane.
