[About the Great Lives biography series.]

Augusta Tabor worked! She worked to make a Kansas sod house a home while finding ways to earn money for her family. In the gold fields of Colorado, she worked as a laundress, baked bread for hungry miners, ran boardinghouses, and weighed the miners’ gold and transported it to Denver. She was a Victorian lady who abhorred scandal, but was the innocent caught up in a love-triangle that made headlines across the nation. Having managed her money well, Augusta died a wealthy woman in 1895, while Horace Tabor died penniless.
