Petticoat Prisoners of Old Wyoming (ISBN-13: 978-0931271564)

What offenses did these women commit to cause them to be locked away for the protection of the citizens? These twenty-three women, wearing frills, lace, and their best bonnets, became guests at the Gray Bar Hotel in early Wyoming. Some of these petticoat prisoners may have been a threat to society: Anna Bruce baked poison into her father's plum pie; Eliza "Big Jack" Stewart shot a man in the neck at a dance. Others seem only to have been at the wrong place and time.
