Roadside History of Nevada (Roadside History)

Roadside History of Nevada (Roadside History) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The roadside history series charts a course to the present through carefully selected and researched stories that relate what we see today with what happened before. Narrated through charming anecdotes, old photographs, and maps. Entertaining insight into Nevada. Divided by geographical location in context with the highways that pass through it.

Book News Annotation:

Bringing attention to the desert, boom-and-bust mining towns, quirky roadside stops, and of course, Las Vegas, Moreno presents the history, culture, tales, and sights of Nevada. The information is organized by area, with an introduction and chronology presented separately. Illustrating the text are approximately 140 black-and-white photographs, and a map for each of the six areas described. Moreno teaches Nevada history at Western Nevada Community College, and is the publisher of Nevada Magazine.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

There's more to Nevada than one-armed bandits, cheap buffets, and Elvis impersonators and this book proves it. Roadside History of Nevada 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 Paiutes to pioneers and from dams to divorce seekers, Roadside History of Nevada reveals the Silver State's history in all its luster.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 265-270) and index.
