Description
Working alongside men in the American West, female miners made their fortunes panning and mining, while facing countless hardships in the mountains of Colorado, California, and Alaska. This history by the author of The Many Loves of Buffalo Bill recounts the amazing stories of 11 of these women, including Baby Doe Tabor, the stunning beauty who stood by a promise she made to her mining mogul husband on his deathbed; Nellie Cashman, who offered a clean, safe boardinghouse to those in need; and Lillian Malcolm, the former stage actress whose finest performances took place out in the mines.
