Author, publisher, and editor Stanley W. Paher of Reno, Nev., is best known as the owner and operator of Nevada Publications, an important Southwestern publisher of literature on Western Americana, and especially on Nevada history, including accounts of the early mining camps and boom towns, as well as the ghost towns that have survived from that day.

As a Christian author, Paher has added his voice to the ongoing exchange of ideas about the Bible and how it is properly understood, or not understood, today, especially within Restorationist church circles.
