Roadside History of Nevada by Richard Moreno
This book leads readers across the not-so-lifeless desert, visiting long-forgotten boom-and-bust mining towns, quirky roadside stops and the intrigues of the real Las Vegas. With a historian's nose for detail and a traveler's sense of fun, Richard Moreno presents a myriad of memorable tales of Nevada's places and people. Illuminating the text are 140 photographs, plus a detailed map for each section. From Palutes to pioneers and from dams to divorce seekers, Roadside History of Nevada reveals the Silver State's history in all its luster.
