Handbook of Treasure Signs & Symbols : Second Editionby Mary Carson
- LendMe LendMe™ Learn More
In all cultures, mysteries, symbols, and signs borrow from vision, experience, and religion. Strung together, they create a picture or message, the building blocks of communication. If understood, they can guide an attentive hunter to a long-hidden treasure! Ninety percent of the work involved in finding a treasure cache is research. Anything else and the recovery is nothing but pure luck. You must think like the person who buried it in the first place. Concealment is a matter of secrecy and camouflaging. The message-writer used symbols to describe his/her own identity or that of the treasure, navigational directions, landmarks, distance, or even superstitions involved with the trove. Carson has unearthed all manners of hidden messaging. Info-packed and filled with excellent illustrations and case studies - the edges of your treasure-hunting braincells will illuminate (the attic light suddenly goes on!). A must-have research tool for those hunting lost & forgotten caches.

This looks like it a good book from the cover art, but inside its drawings are childish and it is empty on real information. Not one I would recommend. Infact I would say don't get it at all.
