Description - A Short History of Reno by Richard Moreno

This completely revised and updated edition of A Short History of Reno provides an entertaining and informative account of Reno's remarkably colorful history. Richard Moreno discusses Reno's efforts, from its early beginnings in the 1850s to the present day, to reinvent itself as a recreation, entertainment, education, and technology hub. Moreno looks at the gamblers, casino builders, and performers who helped create the world-famous gaming industry, and he considers the celebrities who came to end unhappy marriages, back when Reno was "the divorce capital of the world." Moreno brings the city's history up-to-date with coverage of the businesspeople and civic leaders who helped make Reno an attraction that still lures millions of visitors each year. Today's travelers and residents explore Reno's flamboyant heart and scenic wonders, topics the author examines in an accessible and lively fashion.
