Book Description

May 16 2009

Arizona's history is liberally seasoned with legends of lost mines, buried treasures, and significant deposits of gold and silver. The famous Lost Dutchman Mine has lured treasure hunters for over a century into the remote, treacherous, and reportedly cursed Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix. Gold and silver bars discovered in Huachuca Canyon by a soldier stationed at nearby Fort Huachuca just before World War II remain inaccessible despite years of laborious attempts at recovery. Outside the town of Yucca, bandits eager to make a fast getaway buried a strongbox filled with gold, unaware they wouldn't survive the pursuit of a law-enforcing posse to recover their plunder. And somewhere in the Little Horn Mountains northeast of Yuma lies an elusive wash containing hundreds of odd gold-filled rocks.

Selected from hundreds of tales passed down from generation to generation since the days of the gold-seeking Spanish explorers, the tales included here are among the most compelling that Arizona has to offer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fiction? Dec 14 2012

Same thing here. I am an excellent researcher(historian) and I have not been able to verify any of the stories in this work.
They could be 90% fiction.........but maybe not
5.0 out of 5 stars great stories, a fantastic , interesting book. Dec 2 2012

I've lived in Arizona for almost 20 years, and most of these stories are new to me.
Travel back to the old west, with stagecoach robberies, gunfights, and miilions in gold still
out there to be found. I would also recommend one of W.C. Jameson's other books-
" W.C. Jameson, Treasure Hunter".
4.0 out of 5 stars Great library addition for me as a prospector May 22 2012
By Richard Butler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I live full time as a prospector in a small RV in Southern AZ. Sorta Off grid.
Any book I can find like this one is a must...read it 1st day.
Re-read next day...I use it as a referance source.Have 30 books on topic as you might imagine
As with all treasure and gold finding stuff...the books with common threads or stories have different clues buried within...a clue here in one book...another over there in that book all about the same treasure story or place to look sometimes by one name of the trasure..sometimes by another name. But the stories are the same.
Good cross referance book or starting out.
No I won't lend it,
