Literary Nevada Edited by Cheryll Glotfelty
Nevada is a state of paradox and contradiction, blessed with remarkable natural diversity and an equally diverse population, Nevada's variety and distinctiveness have inspired extraordinary literary riches, including the oral traditions of its Native American peoples and an amazing spectrum of historic and contemporary American and immigrant voices.
Literary Nevada is the first comprehensive literary anthology of the Silver State. It contains over 200 selections ranging from traditional Native American tales, explorers' and emigrants' accounts, and writing from the Comstock Lode and other mining boomtowns, to compelling fiction, poetry, and essays from throughout the state's history.
Paperback: 896 pages.
