How far through is that? I finally nabbed a copy off eBay recently and the thing's huge. People talk about books being bricks, but this thing really is.yes, its been a slow going because Ive been drinking a lot as well. But its great. Just finished the section on the history of the chinese people in Mexacli, a town actually founded by chinese immigrants. To escape both persecution and the heat, they built an intricate series of tunnels underneath the city with apartments and clubs and many lived there.
