Idaho Author Tells The Tragic Story Of Peg Leg Annie

May 2, 2019

Annie “Peg Leg” McIntyre Morrow was legendary in late 19th century gold rush Idaho. Orphaned at 16, married off at 17, the child of the frontier learned through grit and persistance to not only survive, but to thrive - as a brothel owner. Idaho author and historian Bob Love has documented her exploits in the book Peg Leg Annie: Pistol Packing Madam, Rocky Bar, Idaho Territory. He'll be signing copies at the Mountain Home Public Library on Saturday and he joins Idaho Matters to spin the tragic yarn of "Peg Leg" Annie.
