Was Ayn Rand beeinflusste
Die erste fiktive Geschichte, die die junge Ayn Rand in ihren Kindertagen sehr stark beeinflusste war The Mysterious Valley von Maurice Champagne. Später sagte sie über diese Geschichte und diesen Helden:

"The first thing that impressed me very much - and I am not emotionally indifferent to this day - was an adventure story in a French children's magazine called The Mysterious Valley…It had an enormous influence on me because it presented in complete form the sort of man I could admire. It was just an adventure - British officers in India - but written in a very heroic way. I mean heroic in my sense: not brutes, but men of ingenuity and intelligence. No work of literature has ever impressed me quite that much."
