The Ghost of Milagro Creek
A typical teenage love triangle takes a tragic turn in the barrio of Taos, New Mexico. The mysterious Rocky, a gringa in an almost entirely Hispanic/Native American community, sets two boys raised as brothers on a collision course. Through police reports, witness statements, interviews, and first-person narrative, the story is told and retold from various vantage points and in various time lines, and the suffering, mixed-race community becomes almost its own character as the plot points unravel and remix to tell the story.
