Summary (taken from inside jacket): In the late nineteenth century, Elizabeth and Herb Bassett settled in Brown's Park, a secluded valley straddling the border of Utah and Colorado. It was a troubled land of deadly conflict among large cattle barons, outlaws, rustlers, and the small ranchers who were often called rustlers by men greedy for their land. Elizabeth Bassett, a gentlewoman homesteader in 1878, was soon branded a rustler and cohort of outlaws. Her daughter Ann became known as "queen of the cattle rustlers." Another daughter, Josie, before the age of forty had married and discarded five husbands, sometimes, it is said, by violent methods.

247 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. AMERICAN WEST. Grace McClure has created an even-handed account of the Bassets. Drawing on interviews with surviving family, friends and enemies, on memoirs, and on 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 Bassett Women is one of the few creditable accounts of early settlers on Colorado's western slope, one of the last strongholds of the Old West. Grace McClure is a free-lance writer currently living in Tucson, Arizona. "The Bassett home gave refuge to a veritable who's who of western outlaws, among them Butch Cassidy, the Sundance Kid, Elzy Lay, Matt Warner, and many lesser rustlers… What makes the book so delectable are the lovingly detailed scandals involving Brown's Park pioneers."--True West (Key Words: Grace McClure, Colorado, American West, Bassett Family, Brown's Park, Pioneers).
