Ponderosa Country, a scenic and historic guide to Reno and vicinity, is a tour book about Reno and places radiating from each point of the compass. It describes things of interest to see on auto trips to the east, west, north, and south of Reno, and in Reno itself. Ponderosa Country was up-to-date in 1972 when it was published, providing a fascinating read today as one compares the region then with how it has evolved over the last 40 years. The author, Stanley W. Paher, has filled the book with a representative selection of historic and contemporary photographs and does a nice job describing what one would see on each tour. Paher's use of black and white photographs adds a distinctive flavor for today's reader of Ponderosa Country. Students of Reno and Nevada history, will find it informative and entertaining to learn what once was and did not last, and what has endured into the 21st century.
