On the northwest corner of our desert ranch where dust devils dance and yucca bells chime, a crumbling adobe hut bakes like a muffin in the searing Arizona sun. Its mud-brick walls are split and scarred by time. Chunks of mortar and shards of purple glass skirt the old foundation, and the weather-beaten door sags like a broken jaw until the wind coaxes its rusted hinges to creak and groan in dismal harmony with tattered wires and a dented stovepipe that clack like castanets across the corrugated metal roof.

Who could ever live here? I wondered. And then, I found out.
