S is for Silver: A Nevada Alphabet | by Eleanor Coerr

From the manmade glitter of the Las Vegas strip to the natural splendor of Lake Tahoe, Nevada’s riches go beyond the silver and gold found in Virginia City. S is for Silver showcases the hardy wildlife (the Desert Bighorn Sheep and the desert tortoise) and even hardier pioneers (the builders of the Hoover Dam) who shaped Nevada’s landscape and character.Eleanor Coerr began her professional life as a newspaper reporter and editor of a column for children. She taught children’s literature at Monterey Peninsula College and creative writing at Chapman College in California.
