“This book is a wonderful gift to Nevada’s people, to westerners in general, and to a confused nation seeking to understand its roots. It’s full of vivid, compelling storytelling that can lead readers to an imaginative understanding of Nevada and western life and literature as they have evolved. This is a very special defining book. We inhabit our own nation, and its literature is beginning to get due recognition. This book will be an important part of that movement.” --William Kittredge, editor of The Last Best Place: A Montana Anthology.
"In the best sense of the word, this hefty book is a sampler of what literary fare the state offers. It is obvious that this sampler is also an advertisementfor a feast." -- Western American Literature (Lawrence I. Berkove Western American Literature)
"Literary Nevada is a very fine anthology. It will be of interest to the scholar, the general reader, students in high school and college classrooms, and to tourists. It is beyond me how anyone could read this volume and not head out, forthwith, on Nevada's loneliest of roads." — ISLE (David Robertson ISLE)
