About this title

Synopsis:

First published in hardcover in 1986 and a paperback bestseller in the U.S. and U.K. in 1987, NEVADA is a gripping story about the growth of gaming in that state from 1920 to 1982. It follows the life of Meade Slaughter from a fourteen-year-old boy working in carnivals to one of the most powerful hotel and casino owners in Nevada. This is storytelling at it's best, with romance, tragedy, defeat, triumph, murder, revenge, beautiful women and real characters like Wilbur Clark, Beldon Katelman, Bill Harrah, Pappy Smith and his son, Harold and Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel who peopled the colorful history of the Silver State.

About the Author:

Clint McCullough has enjoyed successful careers as an advertising and public relations agency owner in the San Francisco Bay Area, business consultant, general building contractor, white-water rafting guide and a "generally footloose existence." After gambling in Reno and Las Vegas for years, he wrote NEVADA with the goal of writing a 20th century historical novel about gaming and getting back some of the money he lost. McCullough has recently published KENTUCKY DREAMING, a first edition historical novel about the Thoroughbred breeding and racing industry and the Kentucky Derby.
