    ... this reader should NOT "do" voices! The accents are awful! And even at "Slower" on my iPod, he's still in too much of a hurry. The book is a favorite, but I wish I hadn't spent the money on this reading. I agree with the reviewer who's going to avoid other books performed by this reader.

    Jan MacKell provides a detailed overview of the business between 1860 and 1930, focusing her research on the mining towns of Cripple Creek, Salida, Colorado City, and similar boomtown communities. She used census data, Sanborn maps, city directories, property records, marriage records, and court records to document and trace the movements of the women over the course of their careers, uncovering work histories, medical problems, and numerous relocations from town to town. She traces many to their graves, through years filled with abuse, disease, narcotics, and violence.

    Story

    This is a really fascinating book, apparently very well researched, well-written, and very entertaining as well. It's a shame that the reader doesn't seem to understand the significance of paragraphs in written English. She spaces every sentence in the book exactly the same distance for the previous one regardless whether the ideas in them are connected in any way whatsoever. It's VERY distracting from a history that deserves much better. The book is worth putting up with the shortcomings of the performance, anyway.
