This is an amazing book. This history of the early saloons and casinos of Tonopah, Nevada was fascinating. The author's work is well-researched and great to read. He takes the story for the goldfields to Reno in the roaring twenties when the town was just beginning to grow as a gambling capital.

I loved the descriptions of the early casinos of Reno and Lake Tahoe from the mid 1900's. Great story!
