Editorial Reviews


"The female figures presented here represent far more than a mere reversal of stereotypes. Perhaps because of the immense cultural chasm they crossed, these individuals were not simply women with a touch of 'gold fever,' but unique and even enigmatic characters... An entrancing read."--Bloomsbury Review "A Mine of Her Own proves we can still be surprised at the things women have done... Delightfully unexpected is the evidence of the charisma these enterprising women manifested, their frequent romantic liaisons and their propensity as they aged to choose young, strong husbands."--San Francisco Chronicle "A fascinating narrative ... a major contribution to the history of the American West" - Labor History "A wonderful resource" - Journal of American History "... illuminates tales of female resourcefulness, courage and humor...a group of diverse women who with great zest embraced the rough and rocky world of the mining West" - Pacific Historical Review
