Elizabeth Bonduel McCourt was born in 1854 in Wisconsin. She moved west, married a man named Harvey Doe, and came to be called "Baby" by the miners in Central City, Colorado. After attracting the attention of wealthy Horace Tabor of Leadville, she began a very public affair with Tabor ending with marriage in a private ceremony in 1882. A lavish lifestyle ended after fifteen years with loss of the Tabor fortune in the Silver Crash and Horace's death in 1899. Baby Doe spent the last thirty-five years of her life in a small cabin outside the Matchless Mine in Leadville.

The story of Baby Doe Tabor has seduced America for more than a century. Long before her body was found frozen in a Leadville shack near the Matchless Mine, Elizabeth McCourt “Baby Doe” Tabor was the stuff of legend. The stunning divorcée married Colorado’s wealthiest mining magnate and became the “Silver Queen of the West.” Blessed with two daughters, Horace and Baby Doe mesmerized the world with their wealth and extravagance. But Baby Doe’s life was also a morality play. Almost overnight, the Tabors’ wealth disappeared when depression struck in 1893. Horace died six years later. According to the legend, one daughter left home never to return; the other died horribly. For thirty-five years, Baby Doe, who was considered mad, lived in solitude high in the Colorado Rockies. Baby Doe Tabor left a record of her madness in a set of writings she called her “Dreams and Visions.” These were discovered after her death but never studied in detail—until now. Author Judy Nolte Temple retells Lizzie’s story with greater accuracy than any previous biographer and reveals a story more heartbreaking than the legend, giving voice to the woman behind the myth.

This is a fascinating autobiography of Baby Doe Tabor, the second wife of pioneer Colorado businessman Horace Tabor, whose rags-to-riches and back to rags again story made her a well-known figure in her own day, and at one time hailed as the “best dressed woman in the West.” It was during Baby Doe’s final years of her life living in a shack on the site of the Matchless Mine, enduring great poverty, solitude, and repentance, that fellow Coloradan Caroline Bancroft met Baby Doe, who had known Bancroft’s father for many years, and became fascinated by her “smile, the manner, the voice and the flowery speech [...] despite her diminutive size.” Following Tabor’s death in the Matchless Mine cabin on March 7, 1935, Bancroft was commissioned to write her biography, her greatest source of information provided by Sue Bonnie, who had discovered Tabor’s body. This book, originally published in 1955, is the result: “Baby Doe Tabor tells us of her life in nearly her own words—many she actually used in talking to Sue Bonnie and others I have imagined as consonant with her character and the facts of her story.”

Forget everything you thought you knew about Mrs. Elizabeth Bonduel Tabor. For over 80 years, historians and authors alike have filled dozens of books describing her as crazy or mad. They claim that Mrs. Tabor spent 36 years living the life of a hermit, inside an old tool shed, located at a Silver Mine she didn't even own...but nothing could be farther from the truth. Marrying first for money, then engaging in two scandalous affairs, Elizabeth Tabor set social protocol aside to become the Silver queen of Colorado, before her world came crashing down. Following the death of her second husband and with two children to feed, she held her head high and fought the corrupt men who stole her deceased husband's fortune and rebuilt a new life for her daughters. Building her own alliances and becoming a successful business woman and mine owner, she watched in despair as her oldest daughter married a close family member, while her youngest daughter slid into alcoholism and prostitution. Desperate for a distraction, Elizabeth Tabor spent the warm Colorado months dressing in men's overalls and digging silver ore from her mines by hand, until just before her death at the age of 80. From running inside a burning apartment building to save a cat, dressing nude roman statues in lingerie to piss off the neighbors, fighting alongside the Unsinkable Molly Brown for women's rights and chasing away trespassers with a loaded shot gun, Elizabeth Tabor held onto her pride and her Catholic faith with firm fist, until her dying breath.

First produced at the Central City Opera House in 1956, "The Ballad of Baby Doe" is now widely considered a classic and is the second most produced American opera. In The Ballad of Baby Doe, Duane A. Smith tells the tale of the complicated birth of this most American of operas. Inspired in 1953 by composer Douglas Moore's interest in Horace Tabor's story and funded by the Central City Opera House Association, the opera came together through a unique combination of hard work and serendipity. Smith relates how key people -- including investors and historians in addition to creative talent -- turned Moore's idea into a reality and brought the story of the Tabors to millions of opera fans worldwide. In addition, Smith compares the opera's libretto with historical reality, and the book even includes a chapter on the production written by John Moriarty, who conducted the opera in 1981, 1988, and 1996. For anyone interested in opera history or this Colorado story in particular -- the emblematic tale of silver millionaire Horace Tabor and the two women he married -- The Ballad of Baby Doe will be the definitive history for years to come.

In her pulchritudinous prime Baby Doe was called the Silver Queen of Colorado by journalists and "that shameless hussy" by the proper wives of the men who eyed her. Flirtatious, adventurous, ambitious, Elizabeth McCourt Doe gave everyone a lot to talk about when she met Horace Tabor, the Silver King of Leadville, in 1880. Three years later they were free to legalize their passion. Although thirty years separated them, they were well matched in romantic recklessness. If The Legend of Baby Doe is the lowdown on the high jinks of two public lives, it is also the story of a love that survived spectacularly good times and bad. Before bad times came, Baby and Horace went on a spending spree. They built an opulent opera house in Denver and bought an Italian-ate villa. Baby Doe went out bejeweled and ermined, and sat at home alone, snubbed by the social dragons. John Burke has written about the giddy rise of a bonanza king who dreamed of entering the White House with Baby Doe on his arm and about the disastrous fall they took together. Wiped out by unwise investments and the Panic of 1893, Tabor soon died, leaving Baby Doe and their two daughters penniless. Reportedly, his deathbed order was to "hang on to the Matchless," a played-out mine filled with water. She managed to do that for almost four decades, struggling heroically against loneliness, poverty, and heartbreak, and becoming one of the great legends of the American West.
