Tales of Farmington NM As It Was in 1955

  Today, the largest city in the Four Corners area of northwestern New Mexico is a chaotic amalgam of shopping centers, traffic congestion, one-brow politics and racial confusion. But fifty years ago it had a small-time oilfield style, and men and women like the Miley Gang ruled with thumbs of iron and petroleum. They made the rules and provided a relatively safe fishbowl for the children of the town to explore, to uncover the darker underbellies and haunches of the soon-to-be-dying oil culture.

The Miley Gang—Arky and Neta Miley, Don Tucker and Bill Smith—rode the crest of the oil wave but they had a vision for a future of ideas; ideas that were as revolutionary as Jicarilla Mud, as subversive as The Angelus of Doom, and as prescient as The Glowing Green Gambit.
