About the Book
In the middle of a desert there lies a man-made sea. A toxic oasis where millions of fish have died and only migrating birds thrive. Polluted waves lap at shores made of barnacles and bones while oppressive heat and wind erode abandoned homes. Volcanic mud-pots gurgle and spit nearby as a religious zealot builds his mountain of salvation. Welcome to life beside the Salton Sea, a place like no other.
