Overview

Gold Mining Towns could be friendly and home to a family

Park City, Utah and Victor, Colorado a mining town near Cripple Creek provided home and friends to Anna Chambers. This book brings all the warmth of yesteryear alive with her tales of growing up in a mining town.

Anna Chambers relates exciting tales about a fire that destroyed a section of town and left her house smoking but unburned. Other tales are sad, like the desperate father of a 10-month old girl whose mother has died asking her parents to take the girl. You read about social parties, courting and falling in love.

This book provides a snapshot of life hundred years ago when $4.00 a day was top wage in the mines. It is full of details, things like growing vegetables and storing food. Anna tells tenderly of meeting her husband, his courtship of her, and then their life together. You hear about their joy when she finds herself expecting her first child and the sad news in the mine were too much for her husband's lungs.

More freedom and joy then we can imagine!
