by Byrd Wall Sawyer

Harlan-Young Press, 1971


The great days of the nineteenth century when Nevada was growing and taking her place among the western states would have been less successful and happy without the woolly friends who followed man to every new ore discovery. Byrd Wall Sawyer wrote Nevada Nomads in the hope that it would serve the purpose of making Nevadans aware of the importance of the industry. The stories and biographies are typical of the time and serve to highlight the contribution of thousands of men and women involved in the sheep industry to the growth of Nevada.
