Incident At Rancho Alvarado
Socorro Alvarado doesn’t know it yet, but an unscrupulous county official has designs on her hundred-year-old house and the sacred Apache spring she has guarded all her life. Enter Kenny Lynch, a wounded Vietnam vet and his merry band of porch partiers. In the spirit of Edward Abbey’s Monkey Wrench Gang, the ragtag irregulars of 5th Street launch what is arguably the most original and unconventional fight against evil ever imagined.
Set in a western town eighty years after the last gunfight, this tale examines the invisible ties that bind us, the families that we create through shared experiences and common goals. And it pays homage to the better angels in us all.
