Rubén Martínez: Love and Struggle in the American West

 

Desert America: Boom and Bust in the New Old West

Rubén Martínez’ (LF 2002) memoir Desert America: Boom and Bust in the New Old West mines the turbulent cycles of the iconic landscape, the author's life and the hardships of his neighbors to write an honest, empathic and illuminating history. "It’s a book about what the West was, and what it's becoming,” writes reviewer Hector Tobar.
