Whether scorned as women of sin or politely referred to as upstairs girls, prostitutes played an interesting role in U.S. frontier society.

Rutter includes a foreword by the head of American Studies at Brigham Young University, photos, a list of professional names (e.g., Squirrel Tooth Alice), and glossary of euphemisms for the world's oldest profession.
