This month we discuss The Milagro Beanfield War, by John Nichols.

From the author:

Joe Mondragon, a 35-year old Chicano handyman cuts water illegally into his father's fallow beanfield, and all hell breaks loose. It's a big novel about a small town New Mexico tempest in a teapot that threatens to start a civil war. With 200 colorful local characters and a ribald sense of humor, it's probably my best-known novel. Book reviewers called it  "funny,"  "irreverent," "poignant," "wondrously fresh and alive," "zesty," "affectionate" "a wholly first-rate comic novel" and so forth, yada yada.
