This is not a history that summarizes the Nevada story, instead it is more like the original source material from which the history is written. For example the articles by Mark Twain were written by him directly and cover such things as his searching for riches in the gold fields, and of his getting duped by fools gold.
The stories are, of course, uneven in quality. Some of the writers, Mark Twain for instance, were professional writers and their stories are excellently done. Some others are not written quite so well, but may tell a story that is otherwise important, too important to ignore. Beyond that, reading these original documents provide a view into history as it was lived rather than just being talked about.
