Witness 4,000 square miles of pure white, stretched out in a radiant expanse—Bolivia’s Salar de Uyuni, the world’s largest salt flat. For centuries, day after day, the only workers on the Salar have been saleros, or salt harvesters. Following the discovery of giant untapped lithium reserves under the salt flat, Bolivia is poised to generate a fortune from this newfound resource, thrusting the Salar into the modern lithium-mining industry. Moises Chambi Yucra, one of the last remaining salt gatherers of the Salar, grapples with the desire to maintain a multigenerational tradition while feeling the pull toward new prospects and opportunities for his family. Stunning landscape imagery, coupled with Moises’s thoughtful ruminations and candid insights from his wife and family, create a poetic inquiry into the nature of identity and change in the modern world.

Sonia Mamani lives on a small island in Lake Titicaca, along the southern border of Peru. As a teenager, she develops a passion for cooking that quickly outgrows her family’s modest career ambitions for her. In this energizing tale, Mamani turns her culinary expertise into a way of life—traveling the continent, teaching women how to prepare traditional dishes and appreciate their local customs.
