I became interested in Soiled Doves: Prostitution in the Early West by Anne Seagraves after I read this review at Kittling: Books. The book was published in 1994, and I haven’t been able to find it to buy at any of my usual haunts; I’ll be looking at the library for this one!
Illustrated with rare photos, this strong book provides a touching insight into the lives of the ladies of the night.
This speaks directly to my interests – I was a history major (social history, not military history), and this sounds like a fascinating case study of a sector that doesn’t get much exposure (sorry, no pun intended!)
