My book on the first 25 years of the classic Las Vegas Strip, "Gambling on a Dream: The Classic Las Vegas Strip: 1930-1955", is now available not only on itunes for Ipads and Mac users but also available on Amazon for Kindle e-readers and Kindle Fire tablets.
The book covers the visionaries who helped turn a two-lane blacktop highway into the Entertainment Capital of the World. There is a detailed history of each of the first ten hotels built including the El Rancho Vegas, the Hotel Last Frontier (and its various names), the Flamingo, the Thunderbird, Wilbur Clark's Desert Inn, the Sahara, the Sands, the Royal Nevada, the Riviera and the Dunes.
This multi-touch, enhanced e-book has rarely seen, historic imagery and over 35 videos of men and women who were there talking about the history they witnessed.
