OVERVIEW

Many people have lamented the pollution and outright loss of beaches along the coasts of California and Mexico, but very few people have fought on behalf of beaches as hard or as successfully as Serge Dedina.

Whether taking on an international conglomerate or tackling a state transportation agency, Dedina is truly an eco-warrior. In this sparkling collection of articles, many written for popular magazines, Dedina tells the stories as only an insider could.

He writes with a firm grasp of facts along with an advocate's passion and outrage. In between, he writes about the first surfers in Baja, the Great Baja Land Rush of the 1990s, Tijuana's punk music scene, the pop-culture wrestling phenomenon lucha libre, the reasons why ocean pollution must be stopped, and the way HBO took over his hometown.
