Queens of the Mines features the authentic stories of gold rush women who blossomed from the camouflaged, twisted roots of California. In the next episodes, we will hear the story of The Queen of Devotion in the California Gold Mines of Vacaville, Nevada City and Sacramento. Much if this story is told in the own words of this entrepreneur who knew how to capitalize on her strengths and proved that some men in the Old West would eventually tire of strong, successful women during America’s Largest Migration, The Gold Rush.
