"Free is the bush, and the desert, and the woods, and the mountain ranges for whoever likes to camp there. In that you are right. But we were the first here; we've got the first claim."

Finished reading it recently and haven't shelved it. Passing things along to Pissedonpolitics, Hecate, and 300 Dollar Wonder.

Yes, it was. It is a great movie and the book is better. It was written in 1934 by a mysterious man, no one knows where he was born or lived (the US or Mexico) no one even knows what his first name was. If you want to read something unlike anything written today, this is a great find.

Treasure of the Sierre Madre Very cool. I can remember a time when I read fiction.
