Overview

The Big Bend of Texas is at once compelling and mysterious. It has been described as a rich and varied land of history, myth and legend, danger, ghosts, rugged landscapes, aridity, remoteness, spectacular vistas, and wildlife that either bit, stung, or clawed. The Big Bend has been visited or settled by Indians, Spanish explorers, Mexicans, Anglo ranchers, outlaws of every stripe, and the United States military. Each of these cultures has left a legacy in this fascinating country, and much of has to do with the wealth associated with lost mines and buried treasures. The twenty-one tales included in this book are spellbinding accounts of some of the most exciting and mysterious lost treasures to be found in North America. They represent many millions of dollars worth of gold, silver, jewels, coin, and currency that are still searched for today.
