Harry H. Pursel was an example of Americans in the first half of the last century who created opportunity and wealth where none had existed, and just as easily lost everything, only to emerge successful later in a new field.

Authored by my father Joe Pursel, with contributions from my uncle Harry H. Pursel Jr., this book contains many stories and historical accounts of Harry's life as a husband, father, Las Vegas pioneer and entrepreneur, farmer, jockey, railroad engineer, detective, train marshall, bank president, stock broker, gold mine president, airline president, sportsman, founder of Nevada Beverage Company of Las Vegas, and finally as a resort and restaurant owner.

Whether you knew Harry or not, these are fascinating accounts of a man who left home at a very young age and fought to find prosperity during very uncertain times.

I hope you enjoy the book.
