Editorial Reviews

Review

 “This book is a wonderful gift to Nevada’s people, to westerners in general, and to a confused nation seeking to understand its roots. It’s full of vivid, compelling storytelling that can lead readers to an imaginative understanding of Nevada and western life and literature as they have evolved. This is a very special defining book. We inhabit our own nation, and its literature is beginning to get due recognition. This book will be an important part of that movement.” --William Kittredge, editor of The Last Best Place: A Montana Anthology.

Exactly what I needed for my English 101 course, a little more worn than was expected- but for the price was totally fine.
