"Buildings of Nevada, the latest volume in the Society of Architectural Historian's Buildings of the United States series, demonstrates how rich and interesting the subject state's built environment actually is when approached from a serious, scholarly perspective. This volume is indispensable for anyone with an interest in the built environment who lives in or visits the state. But it is also an important reference work. Together with other volumes in the series, Buildings of Nevada gives an unparalleled, in-depth view of the complex multifacted nature of what we have put on the land."--American Studies International
"...the most complete guide of its kind for Nevada. Highly recommended as a monograph and series, this will become a classic."--Library Journal
"A significant contribution....endeavoring to provide a more balanced and comprehensive view of Sin City and the Silver State."--Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians"
