Like many Colorado kids, I

Like many Colorado kids, I was raised on the story of Baby Doe. Somehow it seemed like a distant fairy tale until the day my great-Aunt, who grew up in Leadville, said, "Well, of course we knew Baby Doe. She'd come by the house to visit Dad, but we'd always hide because we thought she was strange." It turned out that the real person was part of my family's Colorado story.
