Summary, etc.:
"Two farm boys are bitten by the 'bug.' The internal parasite that gnaws away at the internal human mechanism and seems to say: 'Go seek your fortune' or "Go make your mark in the world.' In the days of old this often came across as: 'Go west, young man.' Esau and Orlando are determined to do just that. They are enticed by news clippings and by word of mouth. These reports hardly include, or if so they diminish the many hardships they must inevitably encounter. Nor do they include the barbaric actions of their fellow gold seekers or the savage intentions of the red men. Esau and Orlando must experience all this and more first hand."-- backcover.
