In the promised land of the Sunbelt, people come by the thousands to escape the crush of Eastern cities and end up duplicating the very world they have fled. Can the land remain unchanged? In Blue Desert, Charles Bowden presents a view of the Southwest that seeks to measure how rapid growth has taken its toll on the land. Writing with a reporter's objectivity and a desert rat's passion, Bowden takes us into the streets as well as the desert to depict not a fragile environment but the unavoidable reality of abuse, exploitation, and human cruelty. Blue Desert shows us the Sunbelt's darker side as it has developed in recent times--where "the land always makes promises of aching beauty and the people always fail the land"--and defies us to ignore it. Blue Desert has no boundaries, no terrain, no topographical coordinates; it is a state of mind inescapable to one who sees change and knows that nothing can be done to stop it.… (mere)

Several of the pieces are quite good, but most are pretty ordinary. The best pieces I thought fell into the first category of "Beasts". ( )

This collection of short stories were written by Bowden during his time at the Tucson Citizen. Bowden tries to explain what he sees Arizona becoming with the current influx of residents from other parts of the world. Bowden tries to explain the connection with the land that is slowly slipping away from every resident of Arizona. Unfortunately, Bowden also goes on about his divorce and his work history - both of which only distract from the overall message of the book. Bowden has a point that the West is slowly being lost, but that point is unfortunately muddled and thus ineffective. ( )
