Drawing on extensive ethnographic research, Anita Carrasco examines the socio-environmental impacts of contemporary mining on the Atacamenos, an indigenous community in northern Chile, and their home in the Atacama Desert, one of the driest regions in the world.

Carrasco describes the impacts of short-term mining corporations like Anaconda Copper that arrived, destroyed, and departed, while explicating the positive and negative memories of those left behind.

This book is recommended for students and scholars of anthropology, sociology, environmental studies, race and ethnic studies, and Latin American studies.
