The empanada brotherhood : a novel by John Treadwell Nichols ( Book )
4 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"It's Greenwich Village in the 1960s, where expatriates, artists, and colorful bums meet to exchange ideas and have a good time in New York." "A tiny stand selling empanadas near the corner of Bleecker and MacDougal Streets is the center of the world for the shy narrator, an aspiring writer who has just graduated from college. At the stand he falls ill with a crowd of kooky outcasts from Argentina who introduce him to their tragedies, friendships, melodramatic dreams - and women, particularly a young flamenco dancer from Buenos Aires. Charming, insightful, and rewarding, this deceptively simple novel is a tale told by a master. It is a wise coming-of-age story, full of joy and touched by heartbreak, that captures a special time and place with extraordinary empathy and humor."--Jacket
Dancing on the stones : selected essays by John Treadwell Nichols ( Book )
3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nichols has gathered writing that span more than thirty years and range from idyllic reflections on nature to unmerciful satires on impending Armageddon. We see the author as a young man on the trip to Central America that gave him a social conscience that wouldn't quit; as a hunter, hiker, and naturalist on rivers and in mountains increasingly threatened by development; and as a novelist watching in embarrassed disbelief as his book The Milagro Beanfield War is made into a movie that succeeds in spite of Hollywood's best efforts to garble the outcome."--BOOK JACKET

The Milagro beanfield war by John Treadwell Nichols ( Recording )
3 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
It all begins on a quiet lavender morning in the tiny remote village of Milagro, New Mexico. Joe Mondragon, Milagro's cantankerous unemployed jack-of-all-trades, suddenly decides to irrigate his father's beanfield on the deserted and desiccated west side of town. Joe's at turns out to be "as irrevocable as Hitler's invasion of Poland, or the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand." The whole town soon finds itself caught in the middle of a quirky, unprecedented war over water rights, grazing permits, and conservancy taxes. In a series of colorful, comic confrontations, a rag-tag, reluctantly organized band of citizens takes on the bureaucratic power brokers, and--to everyone's amazement--emerges victorious
