About the author, Stan Paher:
As an author and publisher of Nevada books and an energetic collector of rare books, maps, photographs, and memorabilia, Stanley Paher has kept alive the history, lore and spirit of the Silver State. He has documented the many diverse aspects of Nevada life in his twenty books and numerous magazine articles. Dedicated to shedding light on Nevada’s past, Paher has enriched the lives of untold number of Nevadans. No other author has matched his sheer scholarly output including books on California and Arizona. Through the years he has become a friend and mentor to dozens of other writers by publishing more than 100 books for budding Nevada authors.

Early in life he found something special about mining camps that drew him toward his life’s work. He found that Nevada’s history was something people wanted to read about. His first book, Nevada’s Ghost Towns and Mining Camps which was published in 1970, was followed by a desert atlas which documents 2,200 historic places, emigrant trails, old stage stations, and mineral sites.

“I love being a keeper of knowledge with the books and articles I have written,” he once said. He turned his passion it into a career and made Nevada’s colorful past available to many generations to come. Indeed, Paher has influenced all aspects of Nevada’s literary universe.

If you seek Stan’s memorial, look around you.
