The search for silver and gold attracted thousands of prospectors to the West, including a young woman named Nellie Cashman. Born in County Cork, Ireland, she emigrated to Boston in 1867, and from there traveled on to San Francisco. Eventually struck by gold rush fever, Cashman joined the stampede north to the remote Cassir strike in British Columbia. Her encounter with men dying along the way from scurvy moved her to organize a relief expedition laden with fresh fruits and vegetables – beginning her career as the “Miners’ Angel.”
 
Following the prospectors, she moved to the silver-boom town of Tucson and then Tombstone, Arizona, where she made her home for two decades. She continued to aid the ill and the injured, raising funds through benefits and soliciting money from wealthy businessmen.
 
In 1897, news of gold in the Klondike reached the then 47-year-old Cashman, who once again joined the rush. Enduring the demanding 600-mile trek which climbed over the formidable Chilkoot Pass, she became the first woman in the mining camp of Dawson. From there she traveled north to the mining camps in Coldfoot, Alaska. Four years before her death at age 70, she revisited Tombstone – a trip whose first 750 miles she gamely traveled by dogsled.
