Nevada Reads in Your Library: On the Trail of the Jackalope with author Michael P. Branch

On the Trail of the Jackalope is the never-before-told story of the horned rabbit—the myths, the hoaxes, the very real scientific breakthroughs it inspired—and how it became a cultural touchstone in the American West and around the globe.
