The late Hal Rothman was the acknowledged master of modern Nevada historians. He put the Comstock Lode and California railiroads in perspective by noting that a good part of Nevada's past and most of its future lay in the south of the state. The University of Nevada Press has just published Rothman's last book - a not quite finished manuscript he could not complete as ALS or Lou Gehrig's disease overtook him in 2006.

You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
