"It covers a brief span of time in the 1930's when the author, in his youth, had a number of adventures straight out of B. Traven's book and the movie based on it, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. One of his adventures was to accompany an equally young Barry Storm on one of Storm's expeditions to the Superstitions. He presents a charming portrait of Storm as an enthusiastic young promoter....... An invaluable insight into the Dutchman literature's most interesting figure, and a good tale in the bargain."-lost-dutchman.com.
