Seeds of a Nation series
The Seeds of a Nation series examines the fascinating details behind the creation of America's states. Each volume introduces important personalities, events, and ideas that influenced the founding of a state. Original inhabitants, explorers, settlers, and statehood are discussed in simple yet vivid detail. Full-color photographs, an appendix of items about the state today, a glossary, and an annotated bibliography enhance each book.
A wild, desolate land peopled by prehistoric native peoples, Nevada was first claimed by and made part of Mexico, then became part of the Utah territory of the United States. Made an independent territory in 1861, Nevada was rushed into statehood by President Abraham Lincoln in 1864 to preserve its great mineral wealth for the Union cause. Nevada explores the native cultures of the state's long prehistory, the coming of the pioneers and prospectors, its Mormon settlements, and the discovery of gold and silver that brought settlers and civilization and the nickname the Silver State.
