Nevada Authors & Books

Holly Walton-Buchanan, Ph.D. | Nevada Author

Holly Walton-Buchanan, Ph.D. (University of Nevada Reno, 2003), was born in Salt Lake City, UT, and grew up in Nevada. Her father’s family has been involved in ranching for over 100 years, from the Walton Ranch in Woodruff, UT, to today’s Walton Ranch in Jackson, WY. Holly was an educator in the Washoe County School District and the Nevada Department of Education. A long-time historic preservationist, Holly has written three previous books about Reno’s history: Education for Nevada: 117 Years of Teacher Education at the College of Education, University of Nevada, 1887-2004 (Black Rock Press, 2004), Historic Houses and Buildings of Reno, Nevada (Black Rock, 2007, 2009), and Mackay Memories: The First 100 Years of the Mackay School of Mines (Jack Bacon, 2008). In 2011, Holly teamed up with Ben Damonte, Jr., to tell the story of the iconic Damonte Ranch (founded in 1857). This led to a broader story of how ranching began in the Truckee Meadows as well as Carson Valley. In the process, several descendants of pioneer ranching families contributed their own stories and photographs, resulting in this in-depth look at Nevada’s ranching heritage. Holly is married to Kelvin J. Buchanan, a geological engineer, and lives in Reno.

Dame Nevada
by Waddie Mitchell

There's a basin, wrought of reason,
tortoise dry and clean of air
Where rivers hike to meet their fate,
get lost and disappear
Where Grand Adventure had a say
and different would prevail
And where only hardy life hangs on
to all that it entails... Read More
