Overview

Spinster May Arkwright Hutton went West in her low-cut, bright colored dresses and made a living for herself cooking for the men who mined in the silver fields of Idaho—alienating the “proper” women of town and making important friends among the miners and merchants. When she and her husband (a man she met in her café) struck it rich, she devoted the rest of her life to philanthropy and social causes leaving a legacy of good works that still affects residents of the Pacific Northwest to this day. As related through the skilled storytelling of Mary Barmeyer O’Brien, this larger than life woman’s story becomes a compelling book and an important piece of Western history.
