Abstract
 
Description
Nevada is a state of paradox and contradiction, blessed with remarkable natural diversity and an equally diverse population. Nevada's variety and distinctiveness have inspired extraordinary literary riches, including the oral traditions of its Native American peoples and an amazing spectrum of historic and contemporary American and immigrant voices.

"Literary Nevada" is the fist comprehensive literary anthology of the of the Silver State. It contains over 200 selections ranging from traditional Native American tales, explorers' and emigrants' accounts, and writing from the Comstock Lode and other mining boomtowns, to compelling fiction, poetry, and essays from throughout the state's history. This rich collection includes work by well-known Nevada writers such as Sarah Winnemucca, Mark Twain, and Robert Laxalt; by established and emerging writers from all parts of the state; and by some nonresident authors whos work illuminates important facets of the Nevada experience. Also featured is a photo gallery of selected Nevada writers and a generous list of suggested further readings.
