Overview

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.

    Highly Recommend *****

    Quite obviously the appeal lies with persons with an interest in gold or silver discovery and history of daily lives in that time period, and are very well acquainted with Arizona terrain. Having the benefit of a very detailed personal & physical acquaintance in all areas of our state (employment related-been there), the author relates well to the difficulty of finding rare metals and especially in finding that specific location again at a return trip months/years later. Some personal experience dealing with various Indian nations and their history adds a personal "feel" as well. I enjoyed it very much...a realization that "specificity" of details and 'proof" is impossible but a well written story with imagination adds to reader enjoyment.
