Resumen:

Weird Las Vegas and Nevada: Your Travel Guide to the Local Legends and Best-Kept Secrets of Sin City and the Silver State : Las Vegas! Blaring, kitschy, tinsel town. What happens here stays here, right? Don’t count on it. Las Vegas, and the state it sits in, are filled with so much weirdness that some of it must leak out. Think about it. Where else will you find a place that names its highways after Extraterrestrials, where mobsters are city fathers, and where Elvis - or a reasonable facsimile of him - hangs out on every street corner. It’s called the Sagebrush State and the Silver State - although that’s weird, since gold is the state’s money mineral. (Nevada is the world’s second-largest producer.) Las Vegas is a different story. It’s Sin City, which may be why it is also the country’s number-one vacation destination. But believe it or not, many tourists head here for something besides the girls and the gambling. In fact, there is so much going on that it took a duo of authors - Joe Oesterle and Tim Cridland - to corral it all. Bravely, these intrepid seekers of the weird explored the Coffin House in Pahrump - and made it out alive; searched for the river of black gold; watched rocks move all by themselves at Little Bonnie Claire Playa,; and tracked down some very odd legends, like the one about the eerie dead body under the hotel mattress.
