Throughout the Gold Rush years and beyond, prostitution grew and flourished within the mining camps, small towns, and cities on nineteenth-century Colorado. The Centennial State had its share of working girls and madams like Matte Silks and Jennie Rogers, who remain notorious celebrities in the annals of history, but the author also includes stories of lesser-known women whose roles in this illicit trade help shape our understanding of the American West.
