Uncovering Nevada s Past Book Review:

Nevada’s relatively brief history has been nonetheless remarkably eventful. From the activities of the first Euro-American explorers to the booms and busts of the mining industry, from the struggles and artistry of the Native Americans to the establishment of liberal divorce laws and such unique industries as legalized gambling and prostitution, from Cold War atomic tests to the civil rights movement, from the arrival of a diverse and rapidly growing urban population to the Sagebrush Rebellion, Nevada has played a part in the nation’s development while following its own ruggedly independent path. In Uncovering Nevada’s Past, historians John B. Reid and Ronald M. James have collected more than fifty major documents and visual images—some never before published—that define Nevada’s colorful and complex development. Here are the words of such literary luminaries as Mark Twain, Sarah Winnemucca, and Arthur Miller; anonymous newspaper articles; public documents including Abraham Lincoln’s proclamation of Nevada statehood and the probate records of murdered Virginia City prostitute Julia Bulette; personal letters; political speeches; and personal accounts of, among other subjects, the construction of Hoover Dam, life in a mining boomtown, racial segregation in Las Vegas, political careers, and atomic testing. Images include photographs of significant Nevada architecture, the masterpieces of renowned Paiute basketmaker Dat-so-la-lee, tree carvings by Basque sheepherders, and tourism promotions. The collection ranges from the earliest descriptions of the region to the current debate on Yucca Mountain. The volume editors have provided an introduction and headnotes that set the documents into their historical and social context. Uncovering Nevada’s Past is a vital, enlightening record of Nevada’s history—in the words of the people who lived and made it—that makes for lively and engaging reading.

We Sagebrush Folks Book Review:

First published in 1934, this book tells the story of an American farm woman, her husband and family, and vividly describes farm life and farm psychology. “We Sagebrush Folks tells the experiences of a woman of education, refinement, and culture, who went with her husband to plow up wealth in the land under the then new Minidoka Irrigation Project in Southern Idaho. The ‘heart of gold’ that experience held was the beauty of Idaho, its sunshine, its sky by day and by night, its mountains, its vast stretches of gray-green sagebrush, which she saw transformed into fields and farms, its pure, clear, inspiring, stimulating air—and what all these meant to her, emotionally and spiritually. She writes with intelligence, a notable gift for expression, and a considerable interest in and knowledge of economics. An intimate, colorful portrayal of the daily life of the sagebrush farmers and their families, mercilessly truthful, but written with vivacity, cleverness, and humor, full of anecdotes, tales, and incidents that are often amusing, sometimes tragic, but always told with a keen sense of their dramatic values.” (FLORENCE FINCH KELLY, New York Times Book Review)

Sage Grouse Book Review:

Richly illustrated with photographs by award-winning nature photographer Noppadol Paothong, and accompanied by the text of accomplished natural history writer Kathy Love, this book tells the story of the sage-grouse, its habitat in the vast Sagebrush Sea of the Intermountain West, and the threats faced by both. Although the sage-grouse once flourished in many Western US states and provinces of Canada, in the past century its populations have diminished drastically. Today, fewer than 400,000 sage-grouse remain, and conservative legislation challenging the preservation of public wild lands increasingly threatens the sage- grouse. This book is designed not only to build awareness on the issues threatening the sage-grouse, but to stimulate and inspire readers to join the fight for environmental conservation and wilderness preservation. Bird lovers, nature enthusiasts, and residents of the American West will delight in viewing the beauty of the sage-grouse and emerge with a deeper sense of the many interests affecting the sagebrush ecosystem and the conservation efforts being implemented. This book is one of the most visually stunning and comprehensive documentations of one of the most iconic species of the United States, great for Bird lovers, nature enthusiasts, students, and residents of the American West.

The Wolf Book Review:

The intimate, involving story of the rise and reign of O-Six, the fabled Yellowstone wolf, and the people who loved or feared her. For readers of H is for Hawk, captivating works of reportage, and iconic books on the American West. Before humans ruled the Earth, there were wolves. Once abundant in the United States, these majestic creatures were hunted to near extinction by the 1920s. But in recent decades, conservationists have brought wolves from Canada back to Yellowstone National Park, igniting a battle over the very soul of the American West. With novelistic detail, Nate Blakeslee tells the gripping story of one of these wolves, a charismatic alpha female named O-Six. She's a kind and merciful leader, a fiercely intelligent fighter, and a doting mother. Beloved by wolf watchers, particularly Yellowstone park ranger Rick McIntyre, O-Six becomes something of a social media star, with followers around the world. But as she raises her pups and protects her pack, O-Six is being challenged on all fronts: by hunters and their professional guides, who compete with wolves for the elk they all prize; by cattle ranchers who are losing livestock and have the ear of politicians; and by other Yellowstone wolves who resent her dominance of the stunningly beautiful Lamar Valley. These forces collide in The Wolf, a riveting multigenerational wildlife saga that tells a larger story about the clash of values in the West--between those fighting for a vanishing way of life and those committed to restoring one of the country's most vibrant landscapes.

Sagebrush Collaboration examines the militia occupation of Harney County, Oregon, and the takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. The book concludes that the militants failed in their objectives in large part because Harney County's citizens invested decades in building the capacity to collaboratively solve the very problems the militia claimed justified an anti-federal government revolution.

Sage Spirit Book Review:

* Reveals an little-known yet iconic Western region that supports virtually all western wildlife species * A conservation priority area for Audubon, World Wildlife Fund, and the National Wildlife Federation, among others Located on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains and stretching from Greater Yellowstone to Telluride, Colorado, the region known as the Sagebrush Sea is a unique wildlife habitat with an abundance of natural resources. For this reason it is treasured by conservationists, private land owners, and energy developers alike. The loss of this habitat would be catastrophic for important species like the Greater and Gunnison's Sage-grouse. Greater Sage-grouse were once found across thirteen western states, but due to energy development and conversion of land for agriculture, they now inhabit only half of their historic range. In addition, the gradual disappearance of sagebrush habitat in the West is having a profound effect on other wildlife species such as Brewer's sparrow, sage sparrow, sage thrasher, pygmy rabbit, mule deer, pronghorn, and more. Sage Spirit features each of these species and the threats they face. Photographer and writer Dave Showalter has documented the seasonal changes, animal behaviors, and migrations within the Sagebrush Sea. He is working with conservation leaders, government agencies, Native communities, and private landowners to tell the complete story of the ecosystem and the way humans are using the landscape. Through images and essays, Sage Spirit explains why responsible management of this fragile habitat is so vital.

The Beautiful Country Book Review:

Every year, Italy swells with millions of tourists who infuse the economy with billions of dollars and almost outnumber Italians themselves. In fact, Italy has been a model tourist destination for longer than it has been a modern state.The Beautiful Country explores the enduring popularity of “destination Italy,” and its role in the development of the global mass tourism industry. Stephanie Malia Hom tracks the evolution of this particular touristic imaginary through texts, practices, and spaces, beginning with the guidebooks that frame Italy as an idealized land of leisure and finishing with destination Italy's replication around the world. Today, more tourists encounter Italy through places like Las Vegas's The Venetian Hotel and Casino or Dubai's Mercato shopping mall than experience the country in Italy itself. Using an interdisciplinary methodology that includes archival research, ethnographic fieldwork, literary criticism, and spatial analysis,The Beautiful Country reveals destination Italy's paramount role in the creation of modern mass tourism.

Reno Las Vegas and the Strip Book Review:

Eugene P. Moehring analyzes the development of Reno and Las Vegas since 1945 with special emphasis on the years after 1970. Major factors that shaped the development of both cities were the growth of corporate gaming and megaresorts and increased personal leisure and affluence. Moehring provides an engaging, informative, and readable history of the divergent paths that Reno and Las Vegas took over the past forty years. Reno, the nation’s gambling mecca in the 1950s, led the way, developing the successful tourist economy that Las Vegas later embraced. Through the 1970s the two cities resembled each other greatly, but Las Vegas grew to achieve global significance, while Reno slowly declined, searching for new industries to power its future. Moehring shows that the development of the Las Vegas Strip was crucial to southern Nevada’s success. The casinos, hotels, and entertainments of the Strip, and the workers they supported, formed a new urban center ringed by offices, residences, shopping, and a major university. In effect, it became a third metropolis, governed by county commissioners, larger than Reno and Las Vegas combined. Moehring brings the story of the three cities to the present day, examining lessons learned from the Great Recession and the efforts under way in all three metropolises to diversify their economies. Moehring makes an important contribution with the only current study of Nevada’s cities, focusing on urban development issues rather than social history or the gaming industry. As the service economy continues to grow, not only in Nevada but throughout the United States, Moehring’s work has many implications for urban studies and particularly the study of urban development in other metropolitan areas.
