Product Details

Vegas is a living metaphor conjured from desert dust: the promise of a good job or a change of luck, crashing up against the Sierra Nevada range, then washing back across a nuclear test site and the harsh threat of environmental meltdown. This unlikely place, a reminder of the optimism or sheer willpower of the people who converted a desert mirage into a dream city, offers a close up and reality check on the notion that anything is possible, anywhere. Twenty-five years after my first summer there, I decided to return to the places where the hermetic subdivisions and playgrounds peter out on the multitudes who try their odds living there.
