The unofficial mayor of Blue Diamond, Evan Blythin, has written a book about the pressures that Las Vegas' explosive growth has put on his enclave. Blue Diamond has resisted suburbanization and other offers to become part of greater Las Vegas. Evan Blythin joins us to talk about the struggles to keep Blue Diamond as it was and about his book detailing those struggles, Vanishing Village.
