Comstock Women: The Making of a Mining Community,  edited by Ronald M. James and C. Elizabeth Raymond

In this collection of essays, noted scholars from several disciplines examine the lives of the women, from all social classes and many ethnicities, who settled on the Comstock Lode and struggled to create a stable community in that transient boomtown setting.

Its women ranged from native Paiute Indians to the poorest laborers to the pampered wives of boomtown millionaires, and it offered a considerable number of occupations to women who needed to support themselves.
