I'm getting ready to post a Highway 50 Series list, but first I want to post general links for Highway 50. Many of these are road and travel links with some geology and history thrown in. The book recommendations at the bottom go directly to Amazon.com. This is my first non-retroactive use of Affiliate links (I've added links like these to a few old posts.) The way these work is that I might get paid, but only if someone clicking through actually buys something, and only if they buy something within some certain period of time. Hopefully, this doesn't seem outrageous - I often link to Amazon.com for books I talk about. These are all books I own, books I would recommend to anyone traveling Highway 50 in Nevada (the books at the bottom).
