THE MILAGRO BEANFIELD WAR

New York: Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1974. First Edition. Hardcover. Signed and dated, with a small sketch, by John Nichols on the title page, with a handwritten postcard from Nichols laid in. A quixotic effort by poor New Mexico farmers to cultivate land for which they lack legal title but own in spirit touches off a symbolic war with developers and Anglo water barons over stolen territory and neglected rights. This novel served as the basis for the 1988 film directed by Robert Redford. Illustrated by Rini Templeton. Octavo. Original black cloth binding, with gilt titles. Faint smudge to the fore-edge. The dust jacket is lightly browned along the spine, with some very mild edgewear; else very good or better. Very good / Very good. Item #75441
