ZIELONY, Tobias. Trona: Armpit of America.

(Liepzig): Spector Books, 2011.  Third edition.  Quarto.  Unpaginated.  Photographs from the small remote community of Trona in San Bernardio County, California. Formally a settlement for individuals working in the chemical industry, the town is now notorious for its crystal meth labs. Zielony captures the town’s arid and desolate landscapes and the teenagers living there who face bleak futures.  Inserted are oversized textual pages which includes a recipe for making methamphetamine.   A very good copy.
