Cripple Creek Days - Published in 1958
Author Mabel Barbee Lee
Publisher Doubleday and Company
City Cripple Creek
County Teller Colorado
State Colorado
Price $15.00 (plus $3.50 postage and handling)
Notes:
Cripple Creek Days is a nostalgic reminiscence of the last of the great Gold Rush towns written by Mable Barbee. Mabel's father Johnson R. Barbee was born in Kentucky. Under the threat of the Civil War, the family moved to a small farm in Weston, Missouri. But, Mabel's father had the wanderlust. After he attended one year at Liberty College, he left and enlisted in the Confederate Army. Four years later with the South defeated, Johnson headed for Virginia City, Nevada. He was in pursuit of the Gold Rush.

Mabel's book has a beautiful photo of her taken during her first year at Colorado College in 1902.

There are a number of excellent photos of life in Cripple Creek in this book.

I am not related, but I would like to connect this book with a family researcher or someone researching Cripple Creek.
