Genre: Non fiction
Synopsis: This book focuses on the Mustang Ranch, one of the legal brothels in Nevada. It is about the women who lived there and about legal brothels in Nevada. It takes into account health concerns, political concerns and cultural viewpoint. It allows the reader to look into a brothel and see what goes on in there. It makes a strong case to have legalized brothels throughout all of the U.S. states.
My opinion: It was a great book. You got to know a lot of the prostitutes and see the softer side of brothels. They're actually much safer than street walking. Nevada is also the only place in the U.S. where brothels are real. I highly suggest reading this book if you're interested in the history of brothels and where they are today. This book is copyright 2001 so it is fairly recent. 9/10 because a couple of the chapters bored me because of uninterest.
