About this title


Alan Bible served Nevada for 20 years in the U.S. Senate, from 1954 to 1974. A protege of Pat McCarran's, Bible believed that "all politics is local" and that the needs of his constituents superseded all other political or economic considerations. He often considered himself to be an ambassador for the Silver State and had a profound impact on land-use policy. Bible used the cloakrooms of the Senate halls to his advantage, quietly manipulating legislation that brought millions of dollars to Nevada for every conceivable project that would bolster the economy.

From the Back Cover:

Bible's senate career is largely the story of water projects, mining legislation, and land and resource development to advance the cause of economic expansion. He deeply admired Lyndon Johnson, and his fifteen-year relationship with the president resulted in enormous economic benefits for Nevada and personal rewards for its senior senator. Throughout his career, Bible carried the LBJ banner and brand. Bible's leadership resulted in the greatest expansion of parks, historical monuments, and recreation areas in American history. Through such legislative achievements, Bible left an everlasting imprint on the lives of millions of Americans. He played a key legislative role in the preservation of eighty million acres of Alaska wilderness for parks, wildlife, the forest service, and wilderness protection - perhaps his greatest contribution to our national heritage.
