Horace and Augusta Tabor left Maine to seek their fortune and ended up in the mining camps of Colorado. While Horace panned for gold, Augusta prepared meals for miners. Eventually, she opened a store and became postmistress while raising their young son. One day they were happily at work--Augusta in the store and Horace as mayor of Leadville with his finger in every political pie--and the next day Horace struck it rich. From then on, everything Horace Tabor touched turned to gold, or rather, to silver. It was then that their lives diverged. After twenty years of hard work and unity, Augusta was renounced as an embarrassment by a man who had or could buy anything. Matchless is a passionate, compelling, and magnificently authentic human drama based on the diary of Augusta Tabor, wife of Horace Tabor, the Colorado silver king.
