East of Eden, West of Zion

A collection of essays in which a dozen historians and novelists present their impressions and concerns about ""end of the century Nevada."" Human expectations and illusions are seen as a backdrop for today's Nevada as a new human frontier. As an overview of Nevada society, this study deals with culture as well as economics, with tradition as well as rapid population growth. The essayists inquire whether the friction between acquisition and preservation, quick wealth and refined sensitivity, will build a more humane and enlightened society.

"This is a little book with a lot to say about Nevada... It is an intriguing potpourri of essays by twelve Nevada scholars that provides humanistic insight into the state's history and culture and presents the place in a more favorable light." -Robert W. Davenport, Pacific Historical Review, February 1990
