Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A cedar chest that had been packed with gold coins robbed from a bank just south of Lexington, Kentucky, in 1860, was recovered 50 years later by a fishing guide in King's Mill Pond. Only a handful of coins were left in the chest, which had mostly rotted away. Is the rest settled beneath the silt of the pond today? The Appalachian Mountains have witnessed untold fortunes gained and lost.

Synopsis:

The Appalachian Mountains have witnessed untold fortunes gained and lost. W.C. Jameson presents 40 legends of buried treasures of the Appalachians gathered from interviews with people whose lives have entwined with the search for particular treasures--caves stacked with golf ingots; Confederate treasures; cahes guarded by skeletons and curses; and more. Location maps included.

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.
