“Tug of Wear Over Desert Homestead Shanties”

Filed under: Press, Shack Attack — magicgroove @ 6:51 am

I hadn’t realized this Los Angeles Times article from 2004 was viewable on-line.  Tug of Wear Over Desert Homestead Shanties, by Hugo Martin, captures several perspectives on the cabins at the moment just before the real estate boom in the Basin took off, changing the equation for what was then still considered largely worthless property.

Martin includes some early history, as well as comments from Shack Attack advocates and law enforcement officials in addition to residents and cabin fanciers.
