Railroad Avenue

railroad-avenue_phyllis-de-la-garze_cochise-county_old-arizonaPhyllis de la Garza is a master storyteller of old Arizona, both legend and lore, often with a female theme. Her latest Arizona tale, Railroad Avenue, takes place in Willcox where a struggling Bonnie Faraday toils with the upkeep and hardships of managing the family ranch in Cochise County.

Through a series of violent attacks, including her brother’s murder and the kidnapping of her grandfather, Bonnie turns to the powers of the Southern Pacific Railroad, after county authorities refused to help her. Railroad Avenue is a wonderful story of family loyalty and female determination.
