      Greyhound to Vagas is the esceptionally well written story of a young woman who came out of the backwoods of West Virginia to make her way by grit and hard work through preparing meals for passengers between buses at the Greyhound bus station in Bowlng Green, Kentucky, through a gambling casino-restaurant combination in Miami, to a run-in with Fidel Castro when he tried to confiscate her casino in Havana, all the way to Las Vagas  where she, with  her husband, established a popular casino and ran a popular  casino and restaurant and was one of the founders of Commander's Palace before her death by murder in 1974.  Her onlychild, a son, became a highly respected lawyer in Bowling Green and later was elected to the Kentucky Supreme Court where he served for five years.  This well-researched, sensitively written book brings to life the amazing life and passion of a brave, entrepeneurial lady in a time when women were not  taken seriously in the business world.
