Nevada history is rich, diverse and fascinating. Nevada Stories brings the fascinating lifestyles of early Washoe/Shoshone/Paiute Indians, the legend of wagon trains, accounts of the Basque herders, and the legacy of the railroad out of the desert and into the hands of children. Visitors will uncover buried artifacts on an archeological dig, stock goods on a Prairie Schooner, discover Native American culture, create postcards to e-mail home, discover the minerals hidden under Nevada's landscape and work on the transcontinental railroad.
