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:

This collection brings together 43 legends from Arkansas, Missouri, and Oklahoma stories about fabulous mines abandoned by De Soto's soldiers

Synopsis:

These stories are about fabulous mines abandoned by De Soto's soldiers; ingots carried partway across the Ozarks long ago, stashed in some moment of danger and never recovered; lodes of precious metal known only to local Indians; and thieves' and murderers' plunder that still lies hidden underground.
