Leonard Knight and Salvation Mountain

In early 2010, John Turner, a writer and Folk Art collector, and Philip E. Linhares, chief curator at the Oakland Museum, visited Salvation Mountain and interviewed its creator, Leonard Knight. Now 79 years old, Knight has been living at this site in the Southern California desert for 28 years; each day is dedicated to his mission of devotion to God through Jesus.
