Buried Treasures of the American Southwest (Buried Treasures) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

The search continues even today. Modern-day counterparts of the Spanish conquistadors and the early 19th-century settlers still cling to the image of El Dorado. Searchers still arrive with little more than their dreams and hopes for the elusive riches.
