Best 'Nevada' book of the year
"It's a technical knockout for any boxing aficionado who seeks to understand one of the fight game's historical giants... For Clifton, an award-winning reporter for the Reno Gazette-Journal, working Dempsey's corner was as natural as a hook off a jab. Clifton goes a long way to returning the legend to life and cutting through the hyperbole that followed his career. Clifton's work tops my list of favorites by local authors in 2007."
- John L. Smith, Las Vegas Review-Journal
'Dempsey in Nevada' is a knockout.
Who knew that one of the greatest sports figures of the 20th century spent so much time in sparsely populated Nevada? Longtime Nevada sportswriter Guy Clifton did a tremendous job of assembling the facts that tell the story of how and why Dempsey spent so much time in this far-west outpost."
