The Unsinkable Mrs. Brown

A Little Western Library book

by Caroline Bancroft


Originally published in 1961, this is the rollicking story of Molly Brown, the Leadville, Colorado waitress who reached the top of Newport society — and a permanent place in American lore — as a heroine of the Titanic disaster. Bancroft’s biography gives the true story of the unsinkable lady from Colorado and makes an amusing contrast with the legend.
