This collection of biographical essays by several leading Nevada scholars focuses on fourteen individuals whose careers afford unique perspectives to help us understand and appreciate the growth of postwar Nevada. The leaders discussed come from remarkably diverse backgrounds, and their contributions have embraced every facet of the state's economic, political, cultural, and social development. Those who best exemplify the maverick spirit are: Moe Dalitz, William F. Harrah, Steve Wynn, Alan Bible, Grant Sawyer, Paul Laxalt, William Raggio, Sue Wagner, Maude Frazier, Molly Flagg Knudtsen, Robert Laxalt, Hank Greenspun, James McMillan, and Jerry Tarkanian. Davies and his fellow contributors offer a fascinating glimpse of a thriving western state and the dedicated and energetic individuals who have led it to its current success.About the Author:
