Flyover Country

A Milagro Mystery

Katayoun Medhat


List Price: 16.00*
* Individual store prices may vary.


The Mesa, eyrie of the ancient Pueblan ancestors casts its shadow over small-town Milagro, where old-time ranchers and thrusting incomers converge in a common cause: profiteering from the land. Charged with mediating a seemingly innocuous dispute about a slain miniature horse, K is caught in the titanic, merciless clash between Old and New West. To make matters worse Robbie Begay may be turning from friend to foe commodifying sacred traditions for the benefit of cultural tourism. As his heroes morph into villains and his villains stay villains, K's customary position between rock and hard place suddenly becomes much more precarious.
