In Anne Ellis, readers will discover the perfect blend of the ordinary and the extraordinary, a pioneer who, "like the most valued of friends, is a woman of wry wit, plain courage, keen perceptions" (Molly Gloss). Powerfully conjuring up the world of the mining camps and the colorful communities of the central Rocky Mountains, Ellis interweaves an invaluable history of the nineteenth-century American West with a valiant personal tale.
