Adams, Six-Guns 1568: “To my knowledge, the only book written about this unique and noted western character.” Born in England, Alice began her career watching her husband play poker and, after awhile, she began sitting in on games while her husband worked in the mines. With his untimely death in a mining accident, Alice turned to cards for a living. The author gathered most of his information from personal interviews with individuals who knew Poker Alice.
