The novel takes place at the turn of the twentieth century in a remote and beautiful stretch of the Chihuahuan Desert near the border of West Texas and Mexico. Rich with mercury, the desert attracts a visionary north easterner, Owen Scraperton, who settles in the southern wilderness to establish a Utopian community called Pristina.
