This double biography and critical study tells the story of the friendship between Nevada's leading artist and leading novelist of the twentieth century. The Nevada They Knew is also a memoir, of Shafton's friendship with Caples, his attachment to Clark's novel The City of Trembling Leaves, and his connection to a land both men taught him to love.
