I intended this book to be a Colorado read while traveling in Colorado, but it is primarily bout a Washington socialite, and a very wealthy one at that.

The tales of living in a mining town, and how her father struck it rich, are enjoyable. The story of how she and her drunkard husband spent the considerable fortune is disappointing/5. Father Struck it Rich was a great read.

Written by Evalyn Walsh McLean, the daughter of Thomas Walsh, the man with a nose for gold, recalls names, places, and events with great articulation.
