Haunted History of the Old West's Wicked Ladies
& The Bad Hombres They Loved
by Marlene Pardo Pellicer
The Old West was known for its gunslingers, lawmen and of course the soiled doves that made a living in the many brothels that were found in all the frontier and mining towns that were established to entertain all the tough men that flocked to these lawless places.
It's not surprising that many of these ladies do not lie quiet in their graves. Many of them died suddenly and violently at the hands of lovers and customers, others faded into obscurity and old age seeking solace at the bottom of a bottle, and others ultimately found a way to live their lives on their own terms.
