Covers the historical and environmental issues that face the Salton Sea, while also offering a portrait of the eccentric and individualistic people who populate its shores. Once known as the California Riviera, the Sea is now called one of America's worst ecological disasters: a fetid, stagnant, salty lake, coughing up dead fish and birds by the thousands. Up until his death in 1998, Congressman Sonny Bono had dedicated himself to saving the lake from complete demise.
