Lucky Baldwin

One of the most spectacular of the famous California-Nevada pioneers, Elias L. (Lucky) Baldwin's life is truly the story of an unconventional success.  
This reprint of Carl Glasscock's biography chronicled Baldwin's early years in San Francisco; his involvements with the famous mines and financial giants of the Comstock; the building of San Francisco's first luvury hotel and theatre and Lake Tahoe's premier resort-hotel, Tallac: his numerous love affairs and seductions; and finally, his closing years as a famous Southern California land developer and racing enthusiast.
Lucky Baldwin has been spoken of as "the embodiment of unmoral frontier' and this story of his life and times, written by an early twentieth century journalist, is a fascinating narrative, mixing history with yarns about people and places in a unique way.  This classic is certain to be enjoyed by all who love the Old West.
