The Silver Baron's Wife

Donna Baier Stein
This fascinating heroine worked in the silver mines and had two scandalous marriages, one to a philandering opium addict and one silver baron worth $24 million. After her second husband's death, Lizzie moved to a one-room shack at the Matchless Mine in Leadville. She lived the last 35 years of her life there, writing down thousands of her dreams and noting visitations of spirits on her calendar.
