Synopsis

Devils Will Reign, available now for the first time in paperback, recounts the momentous early history of Nevada before it became a state in 1864. Sally Zanjani weaves the exciting saga of this rowdy frontier and its colorful characters into the larger story of those eventful years - the discovery of gold in California and silver in the Nevada Territory; the debate over slavery and the Civil War that made the fate of the Far West, a matter of congressional concern; and the Mormon establishment in Utah that prompted national suspicion of the sect's ambitions for an inland empire. In this turbulent climate, the remote, sparsely populated region on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada acquired remarkable importance.
