Quotes:
Twenty years ago Searchlight had nothing to show but crumbling shanties with lizards on the sills, the sad open mouths of drifts and prospect holes, rusting machinery. Now it lies on a paved highway linking Boulder City and Needles. In the sprawling central square the falsefronts wear new paint, mostly orange. We count seven bar-and-casino joints, and even the cafe where we stop for a beer has a crap table, a twenty-one table, and a battery of slot machines.
