This book was a fascinating look at inside Mustang Ranch one of Nevada's most famous brothels. I appreciated that Albert was able to provide a different perspective on the subject while at the same time noting the stigma associated with the women who work at the brothels.

Reading about the history of legalized prostitution in Nevada was also interesting to me as someone who grew up in a Nevada county with legalized prostitution. In one section of the book she specifically mentions my hometown and some of the discriminatory laws which used to exist to prohibit prostitutes from engaging in the life of the city. A great informative read.
