     Many people who aren't from Nevada see the whole state as something that it's NOT. Huge casinos, urban sprawl, busy freeways and 115-degree summer days. That is a correct view of only the very southern tip. This website will represent the vast majority of Nevada. Pioneer mining camps in the remote and beautiful wilderness, 12,000-foot mountain peaks, trout streams, massive cattle ranches, etc. Many non-Nevadans don't realize that gambling doesn't dominate rural Nevada. Mining and ranching does. Wide open country full of trophy elk, mule deer, bighorn sheep and antelope. They don't know that most of the state gets snow in the winter. They don't know that the term "Buckaroo" originated in Northern Nevada and the Great Basin. It's a term of honor given to a specialized group of cowboys that work the massive cattle ranches here. My friends and I have debated on whether the false impression of Nevada is a good thing or a bad thing. Sometimes we feel snubbed that others have the wrong info about our state. Sometimes we justify it by telling ourselves that if others don't know what Nevada is really about, they won't clog our backcountry or hunt our trophy game. I've personally wrestled with it back and forth. In the end, my extreme Battle Born pride won out. I decided to represent the real Nevada here. A few of my friends don't like that idea. Keep Nevada a secret they say... Others love the idea. Show everybody what Nevada is really about... Regardless of which way you lean on the subject, we hope that you like the website.       BATTLE BORN

     For sourcing, I have used a lot of open-source newspaper archives from over a hundred years ago. I have also used Nevada historians like Murbarger, Patera, Paher, Sharp-Howerton, Carlson, Basso, Vanderburg, Ransome, Hall, etc. For all of the living authors that were used, please buy their books. They have put a ton of time and energy into it. Their books are well worth it. I have listed a long library of source material in the Links/Books/Bibliography Section. And check out other Nevada websites like NVTAMI (Nevada Ghost Towns and Beyond), NVExpeditions, Forgotten Nevada, Ray Dunakin, etc. Those websites are linked in the Bibliography Section.
