A rather interesting series of stories about notorious prostitutes and madams of the old west. This a worthy boo kbecause its provides, under one cover, some quick glimpses of the more famous of the "soiled doves." It is not, however, a particularly well documented work, relying mainly it seems on secondary sources. Nor does it provide any philosophical or deeper meaning to the lives of the women whose stories it tells. (And sometimes the author's writing tends toward the sensational and hyperbole.) Nevertheless, it is interesting an book.
