Item Description

The fictional High Plains village of Sweeney, New Mexico, population 856 and falling, is like so many small towns in rural America--once vibrant and alive but now a dry husk of obsolescence, decay, and despair. Only its few remaining citizens care that it not die like so many other towns, but when a handful of them concoct a plot to draw attention to their hometown, the result is a hilarious romp through the oddities and opportunities of small town life. Aliens, nudists, naked bull riders, Druids, phony Indians, and real Indians--all play a role in Sweeney's quixotic journey of survival and self-discovery.
