Laura Evens ran two brothels and numerous cribs in one city block in the red light district of Salida, Colorado from 1900 to 1949. Evans rejected the many synonyms attached to her profession and insisted she be called a whore. Beach did extensive research on Laura Evens including listening to many hours of sudiotaped interviews with Evens recorded by Western Fred Mazzulla in the years before her death.
