“With arresting images and probing text, the Lights lay bare America’s richest agricultural realm, revealing not only how abundant and impressive it can be, but also how cruel and exploitative. The Great Central Valley hides some of California’s dark secrets, just as it remains one of the state’s enduring economic engines.
—–Gerald Haslam, author of Haslam’s Valley
