Colorado's Eccentric Captain Jack

Of the women who came to Colorado in the late 1800s, Ellen Jack could well have been the most unusual. After several deaths in her family, Ellen left civilization to run several successful businesses in Gunnison’s “gold” country.” In this reprint of her autobiography, The Fate of a Fairy, Ellen relates probably the wildest of tales of a woman’s life in the early West.
