About this title

Synopsis:

An intelligent, charming collection of vignettes about life in Central Nevada, an area far too seldom written about: its early inhabitants, historical insights, lore of the past, and ranching tales.

About the Author:

Molly Flagg Knudtsen (1915-2001) was a New York debutante, Nevada cattle breeder rancher and regent of the University of Nevada system from 1960-1980. She helped shape the university system's growth, including the establishment of the Desert Research Institute, the founding of the Anthropology Department, and the College of Agriculture's Knudtsen Resource Center is named after her. She attended Foxcroft School in Virginia and King's College, University of London. Her life-long love of horses started early, when she learned to ride -side-saddle -in Central Park as a child. She later learned English- and Western-riding styles and raised and trained throughbred horses.
