Save to active project


THIS BOOK is a story of Nevada and its people, past and present, and a mile by mile description of its natural wonders and points of interest. Every effort has been expended to make this story accurate and comprehensive. The staff has had the warm and full-hearted cooperation of all people and agencies in obtaining information on every phase of State life. So the book can be regarded as the product of all Nevadans. Much of Nevada history is still unwritten and many events are subjects of controversy, because full records are lacking or are contradictory. No book covering so much material can be completely accurate on every point. It is requested that, if errors are found, the discoverers report them to the compilers for use in correcting future editions of the book.

Special acknowledgement is made to Federal, State, and local governmental agencies, commercial and civic associations, and automobile clubs, for their sincere interest and helpful co-operation in this work. Great appreciation must be expressed for the courtesies extended by the Washoe County and University of Nevada libraries.

The staff is particularly grateful for generous aid in special fields to the following people, who graciously gave very much time and energy to reading and rereading manuscripts and checking them for accuracy: Robert A. Allen, State Highway Engineer, who has given much personal time as well as time for the department he represents; Dr. Vincent P. Gianelli, Head of the Department of Geology, Mackay School of Mines, University of Nevada; Florence B. Bovett, Executive Secretary, Nevada State Farm Bureau; Dr. J. E. Church, Emeritus Professor of the Classics, University of Nevada; S. B. Doten, Director of the Agricultural Experiment Station, University of Nevada; James Hendricks, Agent of the Bureau of Plant Industry, United States Department of Agriculture; G. H. Hansen, District Agent of the Biological Survey; Louise Lewers, Associate Secretary of the State Department of Agriculture; Lillian Borghi, art critic of the Reno Evening Gazette; Roger Corbett, principal of the Winnemucca School District; George P. Annand, district judge, Ely; Lester Mills, instructor of history in
