Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In 1878, after Lizzie Doe's family loses everything in a fire, the twenty-year-old is forced to marry and go west to prospect a gold mine in Colorado. Miners, unaccustomed to such delicate beauty, nickname her Baby Doe. But Baby Doe proves herself tougher than they imagine when she finds herself abandoned, pregnant and running the mine alone. Her pluck gains the admiration of Silver King Horace Tabor, married and twice her age. In Horace Tabor, Baby Doe finds devotion and true passion. When scandal and economic ruin threatens Tabor's life, Lizzie makes a painful choice. Baby Doe Tabor was a real-life, deeply complex heroine, rising and falling and rising again with beguiling grit.
