Set in a turbulent period of goldfields' history The Nine Lives of Kitty K. paints a vivid picture of pioneer life as told by the sons and daughters of those who lived it and survived the terrible Depression of the 1890s. Kitty Kirk (1855-1930) arguably the toughest woman in Otago history endured those times supporting herself as a woman alone. Happiness was followed by tragedy fame by infamy and the circle was repeated more than once. Some locals called her a heroine others called her a harlot. Whichever she was she became a legend in her own lifetime for her daring deeds that are still remembered and talked about ninety years after her death.
