Roadside History of Nevadaby Richard Moreno, Moreno
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.
