Nevada Rock Art contains rarely seen images that are themselves artifacts of fieldwork conducted throughout the back roads, valleys, summits, drainages, and mountain ridges of Nevada. From the northernmost wildlife refuge to the sun-blasted southern tip of creosote-bush country, the process of photographing is itself a testimonial to better than two decades of exploring and experiencing Nevada’s beguilingly diverse landscapes.

Gold award: Bombast: Spinning Atoms in the Desert by Michon Mackedon
“Long-time Fallon resident Michon Mackedon’s book, “Bombast: Spinning Atoms in the Desert,” exploded into the market and is now gaining several recognitions.”
Local author earns several awards | LahontanValleyNews.com.
Blowing up bombs and planning nuclear tombs in Nevada has left a legacy to the residents, a mixture of loss of innocence and discovery of their own invisibility.
Bombast Spinning Atoms in the Desert is a crucial linchpin in Atomic Revival studies. Michon Mackedon recounts Nevada’s relationship with the nuclear industry and a host of players including the Atomic Energy Commission, the Department of Energy, scientists, military men, and journalists. With “an awareness born of deceit” shared by other Nevadans, Mackedon considers the manipulated language and imagery doled out by the atomic industry to make the unsafe appear safe and the unthinkable, thinkable. This second book published by Black Rock Institute Press is an environmentally charged survey of nuclear culture in the “Silver State.” Augmented with “Atomic Pop” images of the nuclear era, this book is an ironic, dead-serious, no-holds barred post-mortem that lights up Nevada’s nuclear industry.
