Synopsis: Miss Laura Evens, one of Colorado's well-known prostitutes (or whores, as she referred to herself) and madams of the era, was a very colorful character, well loved by her clients and girls, misunderstood by the general public, and until now misrepresented by historians.
This biography is unlike any other you've read. Tracy Beach, in her extensive research, found mountains of information from sources never before tapped to uncover a woman who was self sufficient, courageous, and driven. The book reads like a novel with dialog from interviews of Laura by Fred Mazzulla and others, but every word is factual and from reliable sources.
If you love Colorado history you'll find this book full of new information about Laura's generosity and compassion for all who had dealings with her. And you'll laugh at the many colorful encounters as she grew in prominence throughout Colorado. Includes numerous historical photographs of Laura and her girls.
About the Author: Tracy Beach, a Colorado historian and author of The Tunnels Under Our Feet: Colorado's Forgotten Hollow Sidewalks (also published by Johnson Books) was raised in Salida the small Colorado town that Laura called home for fifty-three years and was determined to give this wonderful woman her final wish a biography of her amazing life.
