More informationThe Washington Post Book World raves, “Waterborne is a formidable achievement, an engrossing story, masterfully told.” During the Great Depression, three lost souls meet one another at Boulder Dam, a massive engineering project in the midst of the Nevada desert. Each is drawn there for a different reason, but they have all been haunted by tragedy. The transformation of nature mirrors the changes in their lives.
