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.
