Come join author J.v.L. Bell as she discusses the adventures of well-known frontierswomen like Elizabeth Byers, Augusta Tabor, and Addie LaMont.

In the early years of the Pikes Peak gold rush, men outnumbered women twenty to one, yet the gentler sex played an important role in every aspect of mining life.

Come join author J.v.L. Bell as she discusses the adventures of well-known frontierswomen like Elizabeth Byers, Augusta Tabor, and Addie LaMont. Life for these early women settlers was difficult, filled with long days of washing clothes, cooking, and running boarding houses, but several women established more unusual roles.
