The delightful and touching stories in Christmas in Nevada tell how Nevadans have celebrated the holiday, from 1858 to the present day. Some are told by well-known Nevadans, such as Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain), Robert Laxalt, and former governors Bob List and Richard Bryan, but much more of the book shows ordinary Nevadans celebrating in diverse ways the wonders of the season. The range of the state’s ethnic and immigrant heritage is showcased by stories of Basque, Mexican American, Native American, and African American celebrations, along with traditions of Italian, German, Danish, and Serbian origin. Some of the more unusual accounts include the story of three miners trapped underground for forty-five days during the Christmas season, Tonopah’s “Nevergreen” tree, and Reno’s Santa Pub Crawl with thousands of costumed revelers. Through extensive research and personal interviews, Patricia D. Cafferata has created a heartwarming collection of stories, guaranteed to be treasured. Whether Santa arrives on a sleigh in a mining camp in Silver Peak, Esmeralda County, or a zip line down Fremont Street, Las Vegas, Christmas in Nevada brings warm memories, excitement, and good cheer. • Includes a story from each of the state’s seventeen counties • Illustrated with 57 historic photographs, many previously unpublished

All eleven-year-old Noel wants to do is live a normal life—something that’s just the tiniest bit difficult when your dad is Santa Claus. Just as Noel is struggling to cope with her dysfunctional family— an older brother who wants to develop a non-existent acting career, a younger brother who thinks he's a reindeer and a mother who’s prone to nervous breakdowns—her father goes missing in prime Santa Claus season! When rumours of Santa's disappearance start leaking, a reluctant Noel is packed off on a quest to prevent worldwide elfish panic. To help her on this mission are Gilmore, Coral and Bean, three elves with personality disorders of their own. This ragtag team has one week to visit six factories around the world and prevent them from falling into chaos. With crazy challenges at every turn and Santa Claus still refusing to budge from the missing persons list, saving Christmas seems just a little out of their league.
