When Bob Miller arrived in Las Vegas as a boy, it was a small, dusty city, a far cry from the glamorous, exciting place it is today. Driving the family car was his father Ross Miller, a tough guy - but a good family man - who had operated on both sides of the law on some of the meaner streets of industrial Chicago. As Bob grew up, so did Vegas, now a "town" of some two million. Ross Miller became a respectable businessman and partner in a major casino, though he was still capable of settling a score with his fists. And Bob went on to law school, entering law enforcement and eventually becoming a popular governor of Nevada, holding office longer than anybody in the state's history. And the Miller family's legacy continues. Bob's own son is presently serving as Secretary of State in Nevada. A warm family memoir, the story of a city heir, with just a little bit of "The Godfather" and "Casino" thrown in for spice, "Son of a Gambling Man" is a unique and thoroughly memorable story.
