Kit’s Book Review for August, 2009
Off the Beaten Path Nevada: The Essential Guide to Extraordinary Travel, by Heidi Knapp Rinella, 6th Edition, 2007.
One of my favorite mini get-aways on a hot summer afternoon is to cruise the book stacks at Barnes & Noble. I dropped in last week, and this time I was looking for “what to do during the summer” ideas.
As a native Nevadan I always check out the Nevada section and this time I found Off the Beaten Path Nevada – a very unusual travel guide. Although my husband, Wally, and I have explored a lot of Nevada, this book describes many unique, unusual and little known destinations that even locals may not know about.
It even includes Nevada trivia and some details on our illustrious history – check out the Mafia roots in Las Vegas!
So, take a break, put up a Gone Fishin’ sign, and grab a day to go exploring — you’re guaranteed to come back with a few great stories.
