If you've read The Book of Dead Birds (or even if you haven't) and you're curious to get an inside look at the Salton Sea, the wonderful documentary Plagues and Pleasures on the Salton Sea is now viewable online. You have to register (for free) to view the film, and I know the filmmakers will appreciate it if you give the movie good feedback. It looks like I'm going to be doing an reading in conjunction with the movie at the upcoming Riverside Film Festival, which should be a lot of fun.

A friend also alerted me to the fact that the February issue of National Geographic Magazine also has a great feature on the Salton Sea. I'm feeling a hankering to head out to the desert now...
