About the Book:
Everyone has to grow up somewhere, and for some of us that where is Nevada. Edited by Alan Deutschman, Reynolds Chair of Business Journalism, Sagebrushed is a collection of essays by 12 promising University of Nevada, Reno Reynolds School of Journalism students whose personal stories speak to the economic forces that sustain the state, and convey a vivid sense of the places that help make Nevada so distinctive. From sturdy cowboys and rural small towns to blind casino moguls and legalized sex workers, pull back the state’s tumbleweed and neon façade and witness some of the unique qualities that make up Nevada. Because, as Withanee Andersen writes, “Living in such a strange place is bound to have equally strange effects on people.”
