Beautiful coffee table book Sep 20, 2007
Highly informative and visually pleasing large format book. I loved the layout and the pictures throughout. The writing is superb and holds interest on every page. Can't say enough about this early history of Las Vegas!
Young Las Vegas Review Oct 28, 2005
Joan Whitely's Young Las Vegas is a wonderful book for the living room historian. Joan's writing style and vision of how the book should be read keeps it light and entertaining throughout the text. Rather than being a boring chronology Young Las Vegas is more of a `day in the life' of the different people who shaped the budding center of the world. The text is supplemented by amazing photography and interesting anecdotes that hook the reader into the history of an amazing town.
