7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Adam Rosenbaum on August 10, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is a historical account that is an easy read and provides a full accounting of Nevada's history from the time when American Indian tribes dominated the territory until today. While most people think mostly about Las Vegas when considering Nevada, up until recently most of the human action is the state took place in other locations. James Hulse does a beautiful job in compiling and presenting the influence of mining, railrods, farming & grazing, immigration, water rights, military matters, and politics in all reigons of the state.

If you are interested in a thorough accounting of the history of the state of Nevada, this book is a top choice.

I'm a student at the University of Reno, Nevada and Hulse's book was assigned at the com. college in Reno for History 217. In any case, Hulse is an emeritus professor at UNR who once taught History. I read this book with little expectations. I'm a Reno resident though born in raised in Palm Desert, Ca, yet I was blown away at the recognizable names placed throughout Nevada, its universities, and towns that placed the connection and influence of the frontier attitudes that shaped the State of Nevada. It's an excellent book and Hulse has left me with the need to acquire a more in depth knowledge about these towns, characters, and author. This book is a must read! Feel free to contact cjarrett@unr.nevada.edu if you're a fan, a friend, or UNR student. :)

Again, this was required reading at UNR and WNC (Western Nevada College). It makes perfect sense why. Hulse does an amazing job at more or less layout out the foundations of the state and presenting it in a way very comprehensable to both students and general readers (like myself) alike. The perfect "textbook" for Nevada in every sense of the word. Not dry, nor jelly ... just perfect.

Exceptionally thorough, very detailed account. Especially liked the comparison of urban and rural areas of the state, and how they each evolved. Highly recommended to anyone interested in Western history.
