Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Legends of outlaw loot, pirate hoards, buried mines, and Santa Anna's pack-train gold. Contains 31 legends from the Lone Star State. As they relate to the lost fortunes of Native Americans, French pirates, Spanish explorers, and Mexican, German and Scotch-Irish settlers, these tales are products of the people of Texas: their experiences, adventures, and exploration

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.
