Nevada Before Statehood: A Legal History. This book answers the question, ” What do you get when you cross an immature legal system and unsuitable mining laws with a mountain of rich ore?” The book is dedicated to the early Nevada pioneers who struggled to create a legal system in an isolated environment which was void of law and order. With neither legal training nor education , they relied on fairness and common sense only to be blindsided by the legal tsunami created by the discovery of the Comstock Lode. Written by attorney J. Bruce Alverson from southern Nevada. He has been a practicing trial lawyer in Las Vegas since 1974. This is a 117 page hard cover book that includes dust jacket and bibliography.
