Las Vegas, As It Began, As It Grew

Large 9 x 12 format, 181 pp., 210 duotone illus., maps, index. In the 19th century, Las Vegas was first a Spanish Trail waterhole, then a religious mission, and also a ranch. Las Vegas emerged in 1905 as a railroad town, then developed into a gambling center during distinct boom periods. The reader is led every step along these transitions in both the text and a careful selection of photos. (Published by Nevada Publications ~ Shipped by publisher.)
