ACROSS THE PLAINS IN THE DONNER PARTY: a personal narrative of the overland trip to California, 1846-47. by Virginia Reed Murphy.
Virginia was 12 years old when her family left Springfield, Illinois to trek across the plains to California, their intended new home, along with 25 fellow emigrants. Along the way, her grandmother died, her pony had to be left, her family lost their oxen and had to abandon a wagon with their possessions, her stepfather killed a man and was banished from the train, and then she and her group were trapped in snows at the eastern foot of the Sierra Nevada crest at and near what is now Donner Lake and Truckee, California. As a result, 13 of those who started with her in Springfield, and 29 more who joined her along the way, never did cross those mountains. Here is the little girl's story, written by her later as an adult, now a part of the American epic of winning the West. Reprinted from Century Magazine with illustrations added from Frederic Remington and others. 64 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

THE CAÑONS OF THE COLORADO-- the 1869 discovery voyage down the Colorado River. by Major John Wesley Powell.
Note the word cañons in the title would today be spelled canyons but we have preserved the usage from the time when this voyage was made and written about by the major himself. From Wyoming, into Colorado, through Utah, to Arizona and the Grand Canyon, and to Nevada--this was the journey of the "Colorado River Exploring Expedition", what Powell called his group of 9 men and 4 boats as they began charting what was the last major unexplored part of the then United States. The trip was not only scientific in its goals, but it naturally became a grand adventure, with two of their party opting to leave the expedition before attempting a furious cascade, only to be killed by Indians. Much of the land and scenery which they drifted or dashed past is today included in National Park System areas.

GEOLOGY UNDERFOOT IN
CENTRAL NEVADA. by Richard L. Orndorff, Robert W. Wieder, & Harry F.
"This invaluable guide enthusiastically and appealingly describes two dozen geological attractions in Nevada near U.S. Highway 50. Interpretation of the landscape fills each chapter, and the authors present the evidence and reveal the reasoning process that led them to their scientific conclusions." —Science Books & Films: Your Guide to Science Resources for All Ages, American Association for the Advancement of Science. Most people think of Nevada as a land of casinos and drive-in wedding chapels punctuating vast expanses of desolate desert. But at the heart of the Basin and Range province, the Silver State is also a geologist's playground, with great topographic relief exposing spectacular geology. Cutting a wide swath that straddles U.S. 50, Geology Underfoot in Central Nevada explores 21 diverse walking and driving tours from Lake Tahoe and Reno east to Great Basin National Park. In Ichthyosaur State Park, examine fossil remains of giant sea lizards as you imagine the ocean that covered Nevada more than 200 million years ago. In Great Basin National Park, walk where glaciers sculpted the slopes of 13,063-foot Wheeler Peak, the second highest mountain in Nevada, and go underground in Lehman Caves to marvel at dripstone features called speleothems. South of Carson City, place your hand on an active earthquake fault that continues to lift the Carson Range--evidence that, at least geologically, Nevada is still a work in progress. Illustrated, 320 pages.

MARK TWAIN'S VIRGINIA CITY:
Nevada Territory in the 1860s. by Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens).
Here are the famous humorist's adventures in and around early Virginia City, Nevada Territory (now Nevada state). There are silver mining, speculation in silver mines, work in a quartz mill. A trip to Lake Tahoe to secure a timber empire resulted mainly in starting a forest fire. There was the search for the Lost Cement Mine, and, finally, reporting for "The Territorial Enterprise", Virginia City's rollicking newspaper that reported the episodes of riches and murders rampant in this important Western mining center. The writings here were first published in 1872 in "Roughing It", but we have pulled from the larger work just episodes on Virginia City in order to maintain that as a focus. Read these Twain anecdotes for fun, but, remember, too, that these incidents really happened, and that the principals were often in dead earnest; it just took Twain's insights to show the satirical side of human nature. Illustrations are from the original book and other sources. 64 pages. See sample pages, illustrations.

THE MURDER OF JULIA BULETTE: Virginia City, Nevada; 1867--with the life and confession of John Millian, convicted murderer. by Charles E. DeLong, convicted murderer's attorney, et. al.
Julia, a courtesan now legendary, had not only been a favorite female companion of Virginia City's males, but had been an active contributor to the community in times of civil need, such as the Comstock's early, terrible winters when she attended the sick and needy. Her support of the volunteer fire brigade earned her the title of Honorary Member. Her murder severely offended the camp's code of decency, hard though that was. When her murderer was found, tried, convicted, and hung, virtually the whole town turned out for the final event, "a fine hanging", "the most gala to date in Nevada", it was called. That same evening, Mark Twain, returning from the Holy Land to this town where he had begun his writing career, gave a lecture. Reprinted from a pamphlet issued on the eve of the hanging of Julia's murderer.

THE PONY EXPRESS: a photographic
history. by Bill Moeller.
Fast horses, intrepid young riders, and miles of untamed land–these are the elements of one of American history’s most enduring stories: the Pony Express. During its brief existence, the Pony Express captured the American imagination, and nearly a century and a half later, it still does. In this photographic retelling of the legendary mail service’s rise and fall, husband-and-wife authors Bill and Jan Moeller combine exhaustive historical research with exquisite camera work to create a stunning, full-color pictorial history. Following the 2,000-mile Pony Express Trail from Independence, Missouri, to Sacramento, California, the Moellers photographed sites, remnants, and reconstructions of Pony Express stations, surrounding landscapes, and traces of the trail itself. In the accompanying text, the authors provide a brief history of this unique, eighteen-month business venture, along with dramatic highlights, such as “Pony Bob” Haslam’s astounding 380-mile ride, “Uncle Nick” Wilson’s survival of an arrow in his skull, and “Wild Bill” Hickok’s gunfight with David McCanles at Rock Creek Station in Nebraska. 224 pages.

ROADSIDE HISTORY OF NEVADA. by Richard Moreno.
Rich Moreno is one of the most talented travel writers in the West. His knowledge of Nevada's farthest reaches and the unusual history of each place may be unmatched. —Ron James, Nevada state historical preservation officer.

From ice ages to expeditions, Paiutes to pioneers, and dams to divorce seekers, Roadside History of Nevada provides an overview of the Silver State. Richard Moreno divides Nevada into six geographical-historical areas, rich and often surprising in detail: Pyramid Lake yielded a world-record 41-pound cutthroat trout; Virginia City housed Mark Twain when he wrote for the Territorial Enterprise; and Lovelock Cave was the site of one of the West's greatest archaeological misunderstandings. Survey the boom and bust of the mining industry, trace the desperate plight of the Donner party trapped in Sierra snow, and observe the growth of gambling from low-profile to a neon-castle industry. 368 pages.

THE SAGA OF THE PONY EXPRESS. by Joseph Di Certo.
"Wanted—Young skinny, wiry fellows not over eighteen. Must be expert riders, willing to risk death daily....Orphans preferred." —Pony Express poster, 1860. Threatened by civil war and Indian uprisings, the government in the mid-1800s needed better communication with its far-flung citizens in the West. Three visionaries dreamt up a seemingly impossible solution: the Pony Express. An elite cadre of riders would carry the U.S. mail across 2,000 miles of inhospitable wilderness in 10 days. Complete with dozens of illustrations, several maps, and appendixes of riders and relay stations—including stations the reader can still see today—The Saga of the Pony Express proves there's a reason some legends endure. 256 pages, photos.
