The Poker Bride

Thursday, May 06, 2010

Christopher Corbett discusses his novel, The Poker Bride. It’s based on a little-known legend about Polly, a young Chinese concubine at an Idaho mining camp who was traded in a poker game during the gold rush of 1849. Years later, when the gold rush receded and the Chinese miners returned home, Polly was left behind.
