Description
Neon lights, high-rollers, and celebrities behaving badly are some of the images people see when they think of Las Vegas. But before Vegas became known as "Sin City," it was a small town in the desert where everyone knew each other. It was a place not unlike many communities across the country with its homes, churches, schools, and community events.Elaine McNamara's story is not a tell-all about the gangsters and Hollywood stars who have dominated the legends of Las Vegas, nor is it a commentary about the "good old days." Instead, Elaine shares memories and stories of a side of Las Vegas that most visitors never see and what a fabulous city Las Vegas was to grow-up in.
