Buried Treasures of the Great Plains (Buried Treasures)

Buried Treasures of the Great Plains (Buried Treasures) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The dusty trails heading west of the Mississippi provided intrigue, adventure, and danger for the men and women who set out in search of a new life and fortune. Outlaws along with pioneers and forty-niners traveled this frontier often, finding and losing riches along the way. The Great Plains region loaded with history from native Americans, Spanish explorers, and Mexican, German, and Scots-Irish settlers holds some of the country's most promising finds for buried treasure.

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.
