Synopsis: A guide to the ultimate showplace offers travelers advice on where to stay and eat and how to get around and includes detailed maps, Mafia anecdotes, tips on gambling, and inside information on the enigmatic Howard Hughes. Original.

From Library Journal: "How do you turn one of the hottest, driest, and most unlivable valleys on the continent into a cool, moist oasis that's accessible, hospitable, and profitable?" Castleman has the answers to these questions and all anyone would want to know about the glitter and gambling capital of the world. His concise yet thorough history of the region and development of the city includes interesting anecdotes on famous mobsters and celebrities; hotel stories from the original Flamingo to the epic Mirage; day trips to the surrounding area (Red Rock Canyon, Hoover Dam, Mt. Charlston); and of course gambling, shows, and dining. Castleman does an admirable job in conveying the nature of this young (founded c.1905) and rapidly growing metropolitan area. This is much more than a guidebook, although basic tourist information is plentiful. Yamashita's photos are outstanding, and a good bibliography and index are included. Highly recommended. The same team will be producing Reno , scheduled for 1992.--Ed.
