Salvation Mountain is a huge folk art installation in Niland California dominated by a vibrantly painted hill covered in Christian messages and iconography. It is the work of eccentric folk artist Leonard Knight, who has been working on the installation for 25 years.
Writer Walter Kevin Eubank has spent the last two years assisting Knight at Salvation Mountain, and is working on a book about the experience entitled Time With Leonard. Eubank is raising money for the book project on Kickstarter.
