The Roots of Reno

Reno grew into "The Biggest Little City in the World" with the help of four casino pioneers: Nick Abelman, Bill Graham, Jim McKay, and George Wingfield. These men took the millions they dug up in Central Nevada boomtowns like Tonopah and Goldfield, and settled into Reno and Lake Tahoe Nevada to change the face of casinos forever. Long before Bill Harrah ever heard of Reno, these four men held sway over the town of Reno through hard work, intimidation, and treachery. Banks were plundered, stocks were swindled, and friends like Alvin Karpis, the Barker Gang, and “Baby Face” Nelson came to visit – and help when they could. Sixty years of Nevada gaming is found in The Roots of Reno. (Published by Al Moe in 2008 ~ Shipped by publisher.)
