Lost what? Or that the writer was lost?

It is indeed an excellent book, and at the same time a very sad picture of people.

An excellent summary, pretty much covering everything, succinctly.

When I re-read it several years ago, I was struck by one passage where Mack, on behalf of himself and his boys, offered to stay in one of Lee Chong’s outbuildings–suggesting that their presence would provide protection that Lee Chong would otherwise not have. The ensuing description of Lee Chong’s on-the-spot mental analysis and calculus regarding the offer is captivating and brilliant. One of the most memorable narratives I’ve ever come across.
