The Life and Legend of
Sarah Catherine "Kate" (King)
a.k.a. Kate Clarke
Kate, In Fact and Fiction is the story of the survival of a young woman from Blue Springs, Jackson County, Missouri, named Sarah Catherine King who, at the outbreak of the Civil War, became intimately involved with the notorious Confederate guerrilla leader, William Clarke Quantrill.
This book seeks to separate truth from fantasy...reality from assumption...to stimulate expanded interest and increased scrutiny of all aspects of this most intriguing character with local and national historical importance.
