Land of the Buckaroo: Historic Ranches of Western Nevada

  • Description
"Land of the Buckaroo" is an exciting history of the first ranches to be established in western Nevada and how they contributed to the economic success of the Silver State's booming silver mines and the transcontinental railroad that linked Reno with San Francisco and Chicago. Particular focus is on the Mormon settlements in Carson Valley, later taken over by farmers from Northern Europe, and on the early ranches in the valley where Reno and Sparks would eventually be found.
