I love Louis L'Amour books, and this is no exception. Every now and then, he makes a really good point. I'll have to dig up the actual quote that's gotten to me this time, but the gist of it is this: humans are natural civilization builders. But the drawback to this is that it can make us unprepared to survive. Natural disasters push us to the brink, and those most unprepared are those most likely to revert to savagery, especially savagery against other humans.

UPDATE: yeah, the whole book was thought provoking. One of the best of his many books, imho. On a lighter note, why can't I meet a guy like that?
