Mr. Las Vegas Has a Bad Knee : and Other Tales of the People, Places, and Peculiarities of the Modern American Southwest Paperback / softback

Description

Discover the Weird, Weird WestFor more than thirty years, journalist and author Martin J.

Smith traveled the American West, chasing offbeat stories that were often bizarre, always compelling, and at times profound.

His journey through that oft-idealized and misunderstood landscape has made him a witness to some of the West's most interesting places, people, and events, from his Valentine's Day at Nevada's Mustang Ranch brothel to the deathbed of a man who spent three decades building two 150-ton concrete dinosaurs in the desert.

This collection of essays, often told with the wisdom and perspective of a writer looking back, chronicles in vivid detail the heroes, heels, and cultural spasms of an endlessly fascinating frontier.
