Hell is lined with concrete. Such are the thoughts of Lance Camino, a young construction worker, whose survival during the Great Depression relies on working in the diversion tunnels of the Hoover Dam Project. Accidents, disease, politics, and theMoreHell is lined with concrete. Such are the thoughts of Lance Camino, a young construction worker, whose survival during the Great Depression relies on working in the diversion tunnels of the Hoover Dam Project.

Accidents, disease, politics, and the deadly wildlife of the harsh Nevada desert are only a few of the obstacles that interfere with his desire to save enough money to get back to his Texas home. Something else is distracting him from his goal. Something that his friend Pete McGee says, “has the prettiest red hair in the state.” Ragtown is the story of one young mans coming of age while laboring to complete a task of seemingly impossible proportions: turning the Colorado River.

However, Lance discovers that diverting the massive river from a course that it has run for thousands of years may be easier than forging a new path of his own. The novel incorporates authentic events and the oral history quotes of actual dam workers into the text.

It explores the themes of man-versus-self and man-versus-environment while detailing a time in American history when ordinary men and women rose to the challenges thrust upon them, and triumphed. It should serve as both a reminder of times past and as a sketch of the vast possibilities of human ingenuity.
