9780874178432: The River and the Railroad: An Archaeological History of Reno (Shepperson Series in Nevada History)

When the City of Reno decided at the beginning of this century to create a trench to lower the railroad tracks that ran through its center, archaeologists associated with the ReTRAC (Reno Transportation
Rail Access Corridor) project had a unique opportunity to explore the evidence of thousands of years of human history locked beneath downtown s busy streets. The River and the Railroad traces the people and events that shaped the city, incorporating archaeological findings to add a more tangible physical dimension to the known history. It offers fascinating insights into the lives of many different people from Reno s past and helps to correct some common misperceptions about the history of the American West.

Review:

This book has a great deal to offer archaeologists, students, and the larger public. It contains a tremendous amount of fascinating information about Reno and its position in the greater western world. This book would be a welcome library addition for anyone who enjoys history, archaeology, geography, or material culture studies. --Carolyn L. White, author of American Artifacts of Personal Adornment, 1680 1820: A Guide to Identification and Interpretation

The authors have done an excellent job of telling the story of the Truckee Meadows and Reno as it unfolded and as it is expressed in the archaeological record. --Ronald M. James, author of The Roar and the Silence: A History of Virginia City and the Comstock Lode
