Joe And The UFO — An American Folk Tale

(2 customer reviews)


A flying saucer crashes in the meadow of Joe Lucky’s ranch. When Joe hauls the UFO into his barn with his tractor, he sets in motion a series of wild and wacky events that threaten to launch World War III. Everyone wants the UFO – the Air Force, the Army, the CIA. And all of them come to the San Miguel Valley to claim it.

With San Miguel’s citizens clamoring for him to give up the UFO, Joe wants to believe there is something good inside the downed spacecraft. Only later, after the little Hispanic town is overrun with tourists, the media, and UFO enthusiasts, do the citizens of San Miguel realize what Joe is trying to do – prompting them to rise up and protect their new folk hero.

2 reviews for Joe And The UFO — An American Folk Tale

  1. The Chronicle News

    “There are important lessons to be learned in reading this novel. Joe and the UFO is unequivocally one of the best first novels, ranking right up there with Steinbeck’s Tortilla Flat and John Nichol’s The Milagro Beanfield War. The story is a masterful representation of right and wrong, the need to love and believe, and certainly, the ability to laugh at our own foibles and shortcomings.”

  2. The Pueblo Chieftain

    “It’s a tale of hope, love, greed, envy and power . . . and follows what happens when a flying saucer crashes at Joe Lucky’s ranch and he hauls it into his barn with his tractor. The tangle of events set in motion by Joe’s decision to shelter the UFO results in ‘a proverbial wild and wacky World War III.'”
