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. llluminating 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.

"Richard Moreno is one of the most talented travel writers in the West. His knowledge of Nevada's farthest reaches and the unusual history of each place may be unmatched. In Roadside History of Nevada, Moreno captures what's best of Nevada, and he shows his talents off in a remarkable way." --Ron James, Nevada State Historic Preservation Officer
