Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Through 30 revived tales of wealth and splendor, readers will be tempted to throw some supplies into a backpack like the forty-niners of yore. Although numerous stories of lost gold and silver veins are abundant, they in no way represent all of the wealth hidden in California's folklore. California's mountains, deserts, beaches and cities are all emcompassed in this collection.

Synopsis:

This volume, the seventh in W.C. Jameson's buried treasures series, contains thirty such tales of forgotten riches. It was these tales and others like them that drove westware expansion, and though many of the legendary California treasures have been unearthed, many still remain.

Synopsis:

W.C. Jameson, a geographer and environmentalist, has toured much of the country in a battered, green Ford pick-up truck, collecting legends and searching for the elusive riches that treasure hunters believe await them. His sources include his own fieldwork and archival documents, as well as the reports of die-hard treasure seekers and their descendents.
