    From World War II to the early 1960s, Harolds Club was the largest casino in Nevada and probably the most widely known in the world. The story of Harolds and the family that owned it, this is also a revealing chronicle of the gaming industrys colorful, vigorous, and sometimes outrageous youth. A semi-itinerant family of carnival game concessionaires named Smith founded Harolds Club in Reno in 1935 in a rented hole-in-the-wall storefront. No casino owners were ever more idiosyncratic in their approach to the business than the Smiths. Pappy died in 1967, and in 1970, Summa Corporation bought Harolds Club, and quickly changed the operation in line with their corporate values. An era in Renos gaming industry was ending, and Harolds Club was the first casino to experience conversion to the new ways. 322 pgs, hardcover, 2003
