Overview

This is a search for treasure with a murderous twist. Using poetry from the past and contacts with the present, two young men in Oregon capture the essence of a mythical yet real girl who may or may not have been a witness to a frightening event. With a detailed background of the Oregon hills and fauna, Jerry Rust brings to life the scenes of lumbering, gold hunting, and daily living of both the pioneers and present day residents of the Willamette Valley. And includes interesting facts about covered bridges. ""Think about it Larry.  People who live in a plastic, steel, concrete and electronics world, trapped in traffic jams and pollution are looking for fresh air and authenticity.  That's what covered bridges are, authentic, every beam, every board, every plank, every truss.  Wood!  And not just any wood, but wood cut from hundreds of year old trees."
