The economic boom was writ nowhere as large as on the West. Over the past decade, the most iconic of American landscapes has undergone a political and demographic upheaval comparable only to the opening of the frontier. In Desert America, a work of powerful reportage and memoir, acclaimed author Ruben MartiĀ­nez explores a world of extremes: drug addiction flourishing in the shadow of some of America's richest zip codes, a race war near the banks of the Rio Grande, and Native Americans hunting down Mexican migrants crossing the most desolate stretch of the border. Desert America details MartiĀ­nez's own love for this most contested region and reveals that the great frontier is now in the forefront of the vast disparities that are redefining the very idea of America.
