Lorry Lutzabout this book: "I've come to take you away from this Bertha." Kate pushed the door open wide enough to step into the room.
Bertha stood helpless and dazed in a ragged nightgown as Kate handed her a skirt and blouse from the hook on the wall.
"Hurry! Put these over your gown. We can talk once we're out of here. I have a carriage waiting at the corner."
They both froze at a loud bang on the door. "Bertha, open up!"
"It's Jake, Bertha whispered. "You're too late."
Katharine Bushnell risked her own safety to rescue street girls like Bertha caught in prostitution on Halliday Street in Denver. From there she responded to Francis Willard's invitation to work in Hell's Half Acre in downtown Chicago and into the dens in the lumber camps of northern Wisconsin. She fearlessly wrote reports and told her stories. But who would listen to her? Even the governor's reporter called her a liar! But Kate was determined, at any cost, to expose the dark secrets of innocent girls enslaved.
