The Bassett Women by Grace McClure
Grace McClure has created and even-handed account of the Bassetts. Drawing on interviews with surviving family, friends and enemies, on memoirs, and an oral and written records from local libraries, newspapers, and archives she presents believable, life-size characters who respond realistically to the demands of pioneer life. The Basset Women is one of the few credible accounts of early settlers on Colorado's western slope, one of the last strongholds of the Old West.
