Charles Bowden writes efficiently and manipulates your mind to try and think as he does In the first book I read of his Blue Desert he rambles relentlessly about the problems of man and how we constantly fail the land The next book I read of his Desierto is a combination of three different journals and like the first novel he obsesses with the downfall of humans The way in which he goes about describing the Seris the Drug lords and Charles Keating is almost mind-boggling He will switch randomly in the novel jumping from one story to the next almost as if he didnt have any organization but I believe that is to stress certain beliefs of his The setting fitting for him bounces from the southern Sonora desert to Baja California and then right to the boardrooms of Charles Keating in the urban area I am lead to believe that Charles like he states in Desierto is in love with the cruelty displayed by modern man and as always his concerns for the land He writes of a Spanish song that means Im in love with your cruelty 133 and further emphasizes my conviction by repeating the same line two pages later while talking of the drug lords from Mexico In Blue Desert there is also that same obsession he writes on page 137 The industrial culture that made me and controlled my mind possessed a mentality of suck power that is it was immune to simple warnings simple messages of future problems and inevitable ruin He writes often about Charles Keating someone who not only robbed the savings and loan but also blasted the side of Camelback Mountain to insert a marble monster of a hotel Bowden uses the same line in both books the desert is a blank sheet The difference is in Desierto he speaks of Keating coming in and writing on that sheet taking homes from the desert
