Introduction by Robert G. McCubbin. McCubbin says in his introduction, "This tour de force of in-depth research strips away the inaccuracies and the myths about Lottie Deno's life..." "Gambler, Prostitute, Lady of the Town. Battered by the hard times of some of the roughest towns in Texas, Lottie Deno in her youth earned a reputation as a stalwart survivor in a particular locale of a man's world the frontier saloon. She reportedly bested none other than Doc Holliday at poker and was otherwise competent, in demand, and profitable after hours. But where other ladies of the night faded sadly, and prematurely, into penury and sad obscurity, Lottie Deno would in time marry well and reinvent herself as a respected lady of the towns of Silver City and Deming, New Mexico." As new, without dust jacket, as issued.
