    In module #7, we enter the period 1880-1900. This period has often been referred to as Nevada’s  “Depression Period” due to the collapse of the mining economy, the loss of about 30% of the state’s  population, and the crippling impact of the nationwide economic depression of 1893-97. The author  of our textbook, Michael Green, breaks from that tradition, and rightly so, because although the  economic doldrums dominated the era, the reform efforts that permeate the period are equally  important and interesting. It is no coincidence that Nevada began its relationship with a vice-based  tourism economy during this period. Seeing few alternatives to mining, Nevada was willing to accept  practices that were deemed immoral or uncivilized in other states.   In  Nevada: A History of the Silver State , Chapter 7 What does  Borrasca  mean in English, and how does it describe Nevada’s mining economy in the early 1890s?  unprosperous and unprofitable mines.  Nevada’s mining gross yield of $46 million in 1876 plummeted all the way to  2 mil in 1894.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
