Buildings of Nevada
Landlocked, arid, and infertile, Nevada is one of the least hospitable regions in the United States. Although it is dominated by its wild landscape, Nevada boasts a colorful human history and a rich architectural heritage. This volume, the newest in the acclaimed Buildings of the United States series, offers a comprehensive tour of Nevada's highly distinctive architecture-from old ghost mining towns to the Las Vegas strip, pioneer forts to mega casinos, the silent majesty of the Hoover Dam to the quirkiness of drive-in wedding chapels. Organized by region, the book is a fascinating survey of more than 200 historic sites, including churches, courthouses, schools, homes, historic railroads, copper mines, forts, hotels, and more. Detailed descriptions set all of these diverse forms of building into social, political, historical, and stylistic context. Featuring 250 original photographs, maps, and drawings, this extraordinary volume is the most complete guide of its kind.
