Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a whopping collection of tales of lost mines and buried treasure to stir the blood of any adventurous spirit and to satisfy the most lively imagination. Maps and photos galore accompany the stories.

Perry Eberhart gathered and researched almost 150 treasure tales and tells them with the same thoroughness, engaging style, and lively anecdotes that distinguish his other major contribution to Colorado lore and history: Guide to the Colorado Ghost Towns and Mining Camps.

Treasure Tales not only tells the original story of a lost mine or a buried treasure, but also fills in the pieces of the puzzle as they have come to light over the years. Many tales become more and more intriguing — but still remain a puzzle. In some cases the puzzle is solved, often accidentally. Eberhart also collects the fascinating tales of lost treasures found. This latest edition of Treasure Tales brings all of this information up to date.

Forty-three maps by Sandy Eberhart and forty-eight well-chosen photographs round out Treasure Tales. This is a book for both armchair excitement and for the adventurer who wants to search out what nature, time, and man's ingenuity have hidden from us — and what nature, time, and man's ingenuity also often help us find. Good luck!
