Calamity, a Childhood of Martha Jane Cannary
Original title: Calamity, une enfance de Martha Jane Cannary
German title: Calamity – Martha Jane Cannarys Kindheit
A trek of prairie schooners is on its way to the Wild West in 1863. The Canary family, led by their father, are seeking a better life, as are the other travellers. When the father dies in an accident, his twelve-year-old daughter Martha Jane has to take over the responsibility. This is a welcome challenge for the girl, who has never been much good at dolls and clothes.
