Outback Nevada by John M Glionna

Description: "Join author John M. Glionna on a journey to discover the real Nevada, a place inhabited by diverse, spirited, and sometimes quirky people who make up the fabric of the Silver State. Outback Nevada explores he far-flung corners of the seventh-largest state in the nation and introduces its readers to the humanity, courage, strength, and charm of these little known Americans. Each story is part of the vast collection of published articles Glionna has written during his decades of work as a journalist for the Los Angeles Times and the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Glionna's interest in Nevada's rugged, isolated landscape and the people who choose to live in this often-harsh environment was born of his own wanderings into the "outback." Through his stories, he shares intimate portraits of rural and small-town lifestyles not many understand. Readers meet men with names like Flash and Mr. Cool; listen to a cowboy minister preach the word of God to his parishioners; walk with an antiques dealer from Genoa as he hunts for denim in Nevada's abandoned nineteenth-century mine shafts; and learn from an ex-paramedic-turned-coffee-shop-owner who provides Boulder City with a true sense of community. Full of humor, eccentricities, and compassion, these stories reveal the state's true nature and extend an invitation to get lost "somewhere out there" in the real Nevada." - University of Nevada Press 302 pages.
