A perfect storm of action, adventure, betrayal, and revenge.

My favorite quote from the book:

"Courage cannot be left like bones in a bag. It must be brought out and shown the light again and again, growing stronger each time. If you think it will keep for the times you need it, you are wrong. It is like any other part of your strength. If you ignore it, the bag will be empty when you need it most. "

I also read about Mickey Rourke being cast to play Genghis Khan in New John Milius Film -because he likes dogs and says he rides a horse better than he drives a car. I've never driven w/Rourke so I'll keep my opinion about that too myself and wait for the movie to weigh in!"
