McKenzie Rising: An American Frolic

By Miles Wilson, MFA '68 (creative writing)

McKenzie Rising follows the MegaMax Corporation's venture to turn the McKenzie Valley into an upscale development, the Estates at Rancho Rio. A lusty, environmental picaresque, McKenzie Rising satirizes our shortfalls while celebrating our resilience and the triumph of community. The book offers a corrective to some of the amendable follies we lug with us as we careen into the (post)-Trump, (post)-Covid era.
