Nevada has long been a place of mystery, irony, and flat-out wonderment. It’s easily the most eccentric and interesting state in the union. Photographer Larry Prosor and writer Richard Moreno help the tender foot and neophyte solve some of the mysteries and appreciate the ironies, subtle beauty and endless skies.
In Endless Nevada, its mysteries will begin to unfold with color, depth, and literary precision. As they turn the pages of this book, newcomers to the Nevada experience will feel their preconceived notions about the state turn to a dust finer than any that blows across the Mojave. Don’t tell Montana, but Nevada is America’s most mountainous state.
Then there’s the canard that Nevada is parched, but the same state that cradles the arid Mojave also boasts Lake Tahoe. This rich, strange place of cactus also has largest national forest in the lower 48 states, the 6.5 million-acre Humboldt- Toiyabe. Its sweeping expanses roll on mile after mile and provide a habitat for deer, pronghorn, and elk.
Nevada attracts outlaws, eccentrics, spiritualists, dreamers, and second- chance seekers. For them, Nevada stretches out like a vast canvas of endless possibility and ample opportunity. More than a century ago, prospectors chased riches beyond their wildest dreams here. What is Las Vegas, after all, but a dazzling dreamscape, come-to-life in the middle of the desert?
