CROSSWINDS is the story of an impulsive young man's attempts to make sense of a confusing world and to act honorably in circumstances riddled with corruption, bigotry, and pettiness. Pathos and suffering are central to the humor of the book.

The story that CROSSWINDS relates emerges in the ambiance of Southeastern New Mexico. It is a regional novel in the way that all novels are regional, the story plays out in a particular place and the characters are true to the types of people one finds in that place.
