"Backroads of Southern Nevada- Selected Trips and Side Roads off Nevada's Major Highways", a book by Jerry Blank is close to publication. 

What's new?... Book samples have arrived from the printer in China which means there has been first-hand reactions to the book from critics, collectors, and book enthusiasts and the response has been magnificent. Everyone thinks it's a winner. From the design and illustrations to host of PBS's TV show Outdoor Nevada, John Burke's foreword to Blank's commentary, the book has great appeal. It’s an excellent souvenir and coffee table book. With four and a half million visitor's coming to Las Vegas each month, this book is the perfect take home gift.

PBS has a copy of the book and is considering using it as an incentive for membership renewal. Just last week the book was launched on the crowdfunding site Indiegogo. Check it out to get your special First Edition Numbered copy of the book. Go to and search "backroads". You'll end up on the Backroads page. Lots of rewards to choose for your support. 

Last Thursday the first book launch party was held at Jerry Blank's home. A handsome crowd of about thirty people attended and got their first look at the book and the new video promoting the book. In the next few weeks several other book launch events are scheduled around the Las Vegas area. If you're interested in attending, email Jerry at, and you'll be updated with dates and locations. 

The anticipated timeframe for arrival of the First Edition is early June. At that time, Jerry will be scheduling signing parties and making a significant effort to get the books in gift shops, casinos, hotels and stores around Southern Nevada.
