"Legendary comrade and consort to train robbers, bootleggers, stagecoach robbers, bushwhackers, bank robbers, horse thieves, cattle thieves, and outlaws of all stripes, Belle Star was born in Missouri and emigrated with her family to Texas in 1863. Myth made her a dancehall entertainer, faro dealer, expert horsewoman, crack shot, and adopted member of the Cherokee Nation.

A tale of passion and betrayal, of delinquency and misalliance, which moves from early eighteenth century Paris, via prison and deportation, to a tragic denouement in the treeless wastes of Louisiana.

Is Manon a thief and a whore, the image of love itself, or a thoroughly modern woman?
