About This Book

Banker, hotel owner, and political powerhouse George Wingfield (1876-1959) was one of the most significant figures in Nevada's history. He was the prime force behind the start-up of its tourism and gambling industries. Raymond's biography details every step of his remarkable climb to power, his staggering fall into bankruptcy, and a phoenix-like rise with a second fortune in gold mining.
