Been awhile, but I still love the real woman behind The Great Western, who never seems to get her proper due:
And here she is floating among the clouds like the hazy, crazy dust storm she actually was.
"She packed two six-shooters, and they all said she shore could use 'em."
—Jeff Ake, who met The Great Western at her "house" in Sonoita Valley, Arizona Territory in 1856
