Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Since the beginning of recorded history, tales of lost mines and buried and sunken treasures have held an incredible fascination and appeal for many people. Reading about or searching for a lost mine or treasure excites men and women, young and old.<P>The great state of Colorado is considered by many to be the Holy Grail of lost mines and buried treasures for the United States. It has been argued that more lost gold and silver mines, caches of outlaw loot, and long-hidden hoards of Spanish and French treasures exist in Colorado than any other state. The incredible number of tantalizing folktales, legends, and stories of lost and buried wealth that have come out of that state seem to support that contention.<P>W. C. Jameson presents twenty-seven intriguing, mysterious and compelling stories of lost gold and silver mines, hidden strongboxes, missing army payrolls and Spanish loot. In many ways the tales themselves are like the treasure they describe. Culturally speaking, they represent a portion of the wealth of the people of Colorado — lore and legends handed down through the generations. They are an important part of the cultural fabric of the state.

Synopsis:

Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press

Colorado is considered by many to be the promised land of lost treasure. Silver miners, gold prospectors, government agents, crooked Army paymasters, and the Spanish conquistadors have all added to the wealth of legend and myth surrounding the mountains of Colorado and the lost mines, and hidden treasure that many believe can be found there.  W. C. Jameson collects these stories in Colorado Treasure Tales.
