Slab City {format} {format} 7:02 Ben Adair

About an hour south-east of Palm Springs, California is Slab City, what some call the last free-place in America. Itís sort of a drifterís camp that, due to a bureaucratic technicality, is under nobodyís jurisdiction. Pulitzer-Prize winner Charlie LeDuff introduces us to some of the inhabitants, searching for freedom, and something more. Produced for KPCC- Southern California Public Radio series Pacific Drift.
