If you visit Leadville, you HAVE to read this book and visit the Matchless Mine and shack. A very interesting story about a silver miner, Horace Tabor and his second wife, Elizabeth, known as Baby Doe. Their brief, extravagant life together before the Panic of 1893 and Horace's death that left Baby Doe and their two daughters very poor. One of the legends of the American West.
