The Milagro Beanfield War

The Milagro Beanfield War

by John Treadwell Nichols
     
 
Joe Mondragon, thirty-six, is a feisty hustler with a talent for trouble, who slammed his battered pickup to a stop one day, tugged on his gumboots, and marched into an arid patch of ground. Then, illegally, he tapped into the main irrigation channel. And so began John Nichols' classic tale of the little guy against the big guy — THE MILAGRO BEANFIELD WAR.
