Interesting biased account of his time In Virginia City, Nevada. He uses nicknames most of the time rather then the actual names of people.

It was a good source for business names, locations and other items for a researcher.

Overall, I liked this book.

I found it to be, first, an enjoyable account of one man's experiences in the "Wild West" of Nevada and California. The book paints a solid picture of place, people, and history, all of which interested me enough to keep reading; there is some good humor, too, making me laugh aloud several times. However, what was, for me, the most substantial part of 'Wild West' was to be found written between its lines. Namely, the book comprises a psychological study, of both the author and the people he depicts in the narrative. In analyzing their collective story, and the many criticisms exchanged between the author and his subjects, we are forced to confront some of the oldest questions about human behavior and the reasoning which lay behind it. Most interesting in this regard was the author's own contradictions, in which he sometimes exhibited the same flaws and shortcomings that he accused others of (or so I read it as, at least); there is much irony in this fact, given the steady theme of allegation and denunciation which characterizes the book. (Then again, who among us is immune to seeing in others what they don't see in themselves?)

One thing I didn't like about the book: the grammar is sometimes awkward, forcing me to reread many phrases. Though, this failed to keep me from finishing 'In the Last of the Wild West.' In the end, it was a worthwhile read, and I learned a thing or two to boot.

My thanks goes out to this book's author, subjects, and publisher. I am grateful for, and have benefited from, your work and service.

This is a very interesting and well-written memoir by a more modern day kind of Mark Twain-ish guy who goes to Virginia City, Nevada, and exposes local corruption and lampoons it in his newspaper! The mafia tries to get him, the local brothel is mad at him and he gets run out of town only to come back and fight with his pen, his wit, and his sense of right and wrong. There's murder, corruption, and lots of wit and humor. There is well-researched history and lots of good writing from an old-school newspaperman who is also the author of other books. It is certainly worthy of five stars for the content. A must-read if you live in Virginia City and you want to get the low down on the locals!
