THE GOLDEN LADY by Dorothy Gardiner

Colorado -- victim of the lust for gold, in successive waves -- and the group that paid the price to the uttermost farthing, in a mining community alternately drunk with success, and stranded when the veins petered out. The Golden Lady was the name given a mine belonging to an English remittance man -- and he deeded the mine, once he thought he had struck it rich, to the newborn baby of the woman he loved, hoping to give her freedom. Instead, he gave them both added bondage -- and this is the story of its working out and round and back again, in the inevitable treadmill of the slaves of gold. Good adventure -- good romance -- and the picture of the times rings true.
