Discovering Nevada Through Its Post Offices
Upon her arrival in Nevada from Monterey, California, Nancy pondered the best way to explore this interesting state she now calls home. A friend suggested she travel the state photographing each town, which Nancy refined to Nevada’s post offices. In the following months, her quest took her to every corner of Nevada, with her photographs and research blossoming into this beautifully illustrated and informative book.
Paiute Indian woman Wuzzie George teaches some survival arts of her people to campers in Western Nevada. From their harsh desert environment comes pine nut soup, egg baskets, and a tule boat that floats! Beautiful color illustrations. Wuzzie Comes to Camp is recommended for 3rd and 4th graders in Native American studies.
