Yes, this is the book on which Redford's well-known movie was based. I haven't seen the movie but really enjoyed the book. Somewhat reflective of the attitude of the time (late 60s, early 70s) but timeless as well. And funny. Laugh-out-loud funny in places. Great sense of time and place. I describe it as a New Mexico "Red Green". But darker. Now I want to see the movie although it couldn't begin to capture all the hilarious details and subplots of a 500-page book. Highly recommended.
