Long before her body was found frozen in the Leadville shack where for thirty-five years she had guarded the Matchless Mine in solitude, Elizabeth McCourt “Baby Doe” Tabor was the stuff of legend. The daughter of a shopkeeper, this stunning divorcée married Colorado’s wealthiest mining magnate and become the “Silver Queen of the West.” Exposing the liberties others have taken with her life story, Temple—who is an Associate Professor of Women’s Studies and English at University of Arizona—traces the legend as it has evolved to the present through biography, fiction, film, photos, opera and Lizzie’s own writing.
