Agnes Salm-Salm was 19th century America's prototype woman of mystery. David Coffey seeks to separate the fact from legend in Salm-Salm's life. Although she may not have been the woman glorified by the myth, Coffey's work reveals her to be a woman who held considerable influence over many politicians and leaders of her time.
