Nevada: A History by Robert Laxalt
Description: A history of Nevada published in 1977 as part of the Bicentennial series of books. Noting that "nothing is more revealing of the character, attitudes and environment of a region than the pure language of the people who inhabit it," Laxalt quotes liberally from conversations he heard through the years. Included in the book is both well-known history and "forgotten" history: the cattlemen and sheepmen, political personages, and true Nevadans. Published by University of Nevada Press (2002). 146 pages.
Dimensions: 5.5L x 0.5W x 8H inches
