Overview

*Treasure of the High Sierra: Dead Men's Gold
(Volume 3 in the Florea/Holland Mystery Series)...

Old Spanish gold-and pirate's treasure's...things like this usually arouse our interest-and for sure stir our imaginations. Mr. Taylor's 'Treasure of the High Sierra' is no disappointment in this regard.

In this 3rd mystery of the series, tracker/cartographer Mitch Holland and treasure hunter Rod Florea find themselves on Mt. Whitney (California), highest mountain in the contiguous USA. It is there that they come to the aid of two teenagers who are looking for hidden Spanish Gold. An old map purchased at a yard sale turns out to be quite authentic, and the 16th century pirate tale that gives the map that authenticity is indeed a bone-chilling account.

Kidnapping, murder, and a macabre pirate curse are only a few of the things that Holland and Florea must deal with as they take on this challenge atop the high mountain. Elite members of the Forest Service are also involved, along with the families of the two teenagers (Billy Brandt and Riley Taylor). Then there are the troubled spirits of pirates long dead...

Are you ready? The great thing about this particular author is that all you have to do is turn the pages, yet you will find yourself right there in the middle of it all-living the story!

Sincerely, The HTTOT Staff

Meet the Author

Mark Stephen Taylor is the author of 'Hiking the Trail of Truth', an award winning autobiography that deals with actually seeing God in His creation through the wonders that He has made. Mr. Taylor is a retired California Peace Officer, educated in criminal psychology and geology. Currently a Biblical teacher and counselor, he offers us some most unique insights into the profound attributes of God. He has also authored 'Hiking Life's Difficult Trails', an in depth look at life's spiritual dilemmas, now in two editions, the second of which is solely for High Country Hikers, whose desire is to learn more about what's behind the wonder and splendor encountered along the high trails. 'Knowing Just Who You Are', is the latest in this 'self-help category', and is for sure an eye-opening look at ourselves as individuals-a treatise on body, mind and spirit.

Mr. Taylor has in addition produced books that he labels, 'a bit of fiction and reality'. Among his bestsellers in this category are, (1) 'Lone Pine'; a story of love undying, (2) 'A High Sierra Christmas'; an untold tale of Jeremiah Johnson, (3) 'Three Days in Lone Pine'; and untold tale of the High Sierra 1873, and his latest western, (4) 'Still Waters'; legend of the white wolf. (Note: 2, 3, & 4 are now part of the new 'Lone Pine Western' series.)

'The Sun, The Glass, and The Leaning Rock'; the secret of the lost Dutchman's gold (also published under the 1984 title, 'A Second Chance'; a daring tale of high adventure), kicks off an exciting mystery series involving characters Rod Florea and Mitch Holland, whose expertise in treasure hunting and route finding are unmatched anywhere in the country. The second book in this series is 'The Secret of Monument Valley'; the Trail of the Anasazi, which solves the mystery surrounding the disappearance of the Anasazi people of the desert southwest.

In the third book of the mystery series, 'Treasure of the High Sierra'; Dead Men's Gold, their treasure hunting and route finding experience leads them on a most enlightening but dangerous journey, where they come to the aid of two teenagers in their quest for old, hidden pirate treasure. Unfortunately they must deal with the ghastly spirits of long dead buccaneers! Expect more great stories in both this mystery series and the new Lone Pine Western series. Coming soon in the mystery series: The Secret of Death Valley, (late 2013).
