desert america

On today's Your Call, we’ll speak with Ruben Martinez, author of “Desert America: Boom and Bust in the New Old West,” about what he sees as the extremes of the desert regions of the US: outrageous wealth and devastating poverty, sublime beauty and ecological ruin.  From drug wars to immigration wars to water wars -- what lessons should we be learning from the legacy of the West?  Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here.  It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
