This personal piece of non-fiction explores the history of the Sierra Foothills and the current changes brought on by the marijuana industry. Attempts to present various ways of looking at how the changes in the Yuba River watershed are about and reflect important changes in California, the essay focuses on the unmistakeable scent of the place and how its reality is transmitted down through time, generation to generation.
