    Well Done

    If you enjoy this type of history, this is the only book covering the entire state of Colorado. Legends are explored and debunked in some cases with solid sources.

    Best Research on the Topic in the State of Colorado

    This book is not fluff like the others written on the same topic. This is research from archives, obituaries and criminal reports. Colorado History at it's best.

    Legends are just that

    It is most appropriate that the author chose to subtitle her work 'Colorado's Legends in Lace.' For although Linda Wommack tells a good story in this lightly - and perhaps hastily - written account of Colorado's soiled doves, the author does not appear to have done her homework very thoroughly. Incorrect or questionable dates and facts are interlaced with over-dramatization throughout the book, even in those stories which have been told time and time again and even clarified by other authors. There are lots of pretty photographs, which vary from well known pictures to a few unusual depictions of prostitutes and their surroundings. Direct newspaper quotes aside, however, there isn't much here to convince the reader that they are reading the truth, let alone enough footnotes to verify what the author says. If you like light history fare without much attention to the facts, go ahead and buy the book. But if you're looking for something with more meat to it, more fact than folklore, I'd skip on by.
