The Usborne Book of Treasure Hunting $14.95



This large-format paperback provides a broad survey of treasures lost and found. Loosely divided into three categories--treasures buried underground, treasures at sea, and ancient treasures--the book offers a series of short articles (generally two pages) on topics such as pirate loot buried on Cocos Island, off Costa Rica; the restoration of the Tudor ship, the Mary Rose; the discovery of the underground army of clay soldiers at Huang Di's tomb; and the recovery of the Mona Lisa after its theft in 1911. The many full-color illustrations include photographs of sites and artifacts, reproductions of period artworks and photos, maps, diagrams, and vivid paintings of varied treasures. Although children researching reports will probably need more information on specific subjects than they will find here, browsers will find this sturdy paperback an enticing introduction to the treasure hunts.

Spanish Monuments and Trailmarkers to Treasure in the United States $14.95



My copies of the Kenworthy books have become so tattered and dog-eared I think of them as necessary as a high-lift jack and a five-gallon can of extra gasoline on a search. Great books for searchers. I consider the Spanish Signs and Markers the best and most useful of the two.

Buried Treasures of the Appalachians: Legends of Homestead Caches, Indian Mines and Loot from Civil War Raids $10.95



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.





Buried Treasures of the Mid-Atlantic States: Legends of Island Treasure, Jewelry Caches, and Secret Tunnels $11.95



Jameson, a professional treasure hunter, teacher, and editor, continues his Buried Treasure series, which now numbers over a dozen titles. Each book begins with a brief introduction to the area, including the source of treasure. The stories all bear the same key elements: a short explanation of how the gold was earned or discovered; the reason it was buried, with a sketchy description of the location; how it was subsequently lost because the owners died or the terrain was drastically altered; a discussion of attempts to locate the treasure; and, finally, a challenge to the reader to find the lost treasure.





Buried Treasures of California: Legends from California's Mountains, Deserts, Beaches, and Cities $10.95



Through 30 revived tales of wealth and splendor, readers will be tempted to throw some supplies into a backpack like the forty-niners of yore. Although numerous stories of lost gold and silver veins are abundant, they in no way represent all of the wealth hidden in California's folklore. California's mountains, deserts, beaches and cities are all emcompassed in this collection.





Lost Gold and Silver Mines of the Southwest $9.95



Handy guide to the long-lost mines, rich veins of ore, silver lodes, buried treasure and other bonanzas reputed to be there for the taking in the American West. All fully described, including fascinating anecdotes about the treasure, its general locale and other information. Each description also accompanied by a map of the region. 96 maps and over 50 other line illustrations.





Apache Gold and Yaqui Silver $18.95



Death is the cure for gold fever, and the lucky few who saw the riches and lived to tell of them spent the rest of their lives searching, haunted by faulty memories, changed landscapes, and quirks of fate. It is the stories of these men and the wealth they pursued that J. Frank Dobie tells in Apache Gold and Yaqui Silver. In this masterful collection of tales, Dobie introduces us to Pedro Loco, General Mexhuira's ghost, the German, and a colorful group of oddfellows driven to roam the hills in an eternal quest for the hidden entrance, the blazed tree, the box canyon, for fabulous wealth glimpsed, lost, and never forgotten. Are treasures really there? Searchers still seek them. But for the reader, the treasure is here--Dobie's tales are pure gold.





Treasure Signs, Symbols, Shadow and Sun Signs $14.95



The very best that a treasure hunter/lost mine hunter can ever hope for is that his information is correct and accurate and that his mine/treasure actually did exist at one time. Then, the only unknown factor is did someone already find it-and deal with it quietly??

The next, and all important factor is the hunter's knowledge/understanding of signs, symbols, trail markers, trail signs and codes used on maps and in the field. Treasure "story" writers have misled the hunter for many many decades. One writer must have surely copied from another and never did research on his own to our detriment. Without knowing it, the treasure hunter searches well beyond the true location of the treasure, just because of a misinterpretation of a single fact. This and many other treasure locating signs and other markers are explained in this book. Don't miss your treasure because you didn't have the information in this book.





Colorado's Lost Gold Mines and Buried Treasure $5.95



This book is approximately 56 pages and filled with interesting history and short stories. I remember hearing interesting ghost/treasure stories as a child while visiting the Colorado area. I recently moved to the Colorado area, and I could not wait to obtain information and books about the area. To my surprise, this was one of the few books that I found. The stories are short and are perfect for story telling. The stories are filled with information to excite the imagination of the possibility that treasure might still be buried in the mountains that has never been retrieved. I probably won't go into the mountains looking for the treasure even though some of the descriptions are pretty clear to where it might be located. However, I think it will make a wonderful conversation piece while driving through the Colorado mountains with family members that are visiting the area. The book is clear and concise and if you are looking for some interesting stories to discuss with tourists or family members this is a great book. Once you start reading it your curiosity won't let you put it down.

 


Buried Treasures of the American Southwest: Legends of Lost Mines, Hidden Payrolls, and Spanish Gold $9.95



This book is a must for the bookshelves of treasure hunters and armchair dreamers. The history of lost gold and hidden treasures in the American Southwest is summarized here as well as it can be.







Oklahoma Treasures and Treasure Tales $28.95



This is the definitive work on lost treasure in Oklahoma. The author gives an excellent survey of most of the lost treasures in the state which are commonly known (and some which are not so well known). The author seems to have researched the treasures in the western half of the state, particularly those in the Lawton area, more heavily than the treasures in the eastern half of the state. Nonetheless, on all of the treasures surveyed, there is sufficient information in the bibliography for the serious student to start researching any of the treasures.







Coronado's Children : Tales of Lost Mines and Buried Treasures of the Southwest $18.95



The author claims, After I hear a tale I do all I can to improve it, and this is an understatement. Readers who possess a sense of wonder will enjoy this book. History often cloaks personages with dusty trappings, stuffy sayings, and mixed motives so time has faded the awe that Drake, Cortez, Raleigh, and Coronado experienced. Dobie illuminates the wonder of the children of Coronado as they chase their dreams and draws us into their world of enchantment.

Francisco Coronado never found his golden riches or the fabled Seven Cities of Cibola during his time in the Southwest. When he returned in 1542, and told the truth about his barren search, he wasn't believed. One person who did believe said, Granted he did not find the riches of which he had been told -- he found instead a place in which to search for them.

And the search continues. For centuries Coronado's vision of wealth has lured countless thousnads to the Southwest where tradition and myth have marked mountains, rivers, and ancient ruins with boundless treasures. This book follows long forgotten Spanihs trails, buffalo trails, cow trails, and areas where there are no trails as searchers dig for riches which eludes their grasp. Others, rather than searching, have sat and told stories of lost mines, buried treasure and of ghostly patrones who guard the treasures -- adding layers to the myths that abound in the land of Coronado.







Buried Treasures of the Rocky Mountain West: Legends of Lost Mines, Train Robbery Gold, Caves of Forgotten Riches, and Indians' Buried Silver $11.95



Jameson, a professional treasure hunter, teacher, and editor, continues his "Buried Treasure" series, which now numbers over a dozen titles. Each book begins with a brief introduction to the area, including the source of treasure. The stories all bear the same key elements: a short explanation of how the gold was earned or discovered; the reason it was buried, with a sketchy description of the location; how it was subsequently lost because the owners died or the terrain was drastically altered; a discussion of attempts to locate the treasure; and, finally, a challenge to the reader to find the lost treasure.







Colorado Treasure Tales $13.95



Since the beginning of recorded history, tales of lost mines and buried and sunken treasures have held an incredible fascination and appeal for many people. Reading about and searching for a lost mine or treasure excites men and women, young and old.

The great state of Colorado is considered by many to be the Holy Grail of lost mines and buried treasures for the United States. It has been argued that more lost gold and silver mines, caches of outlaw loot, and long-hidden hoards of Spanish and French treasures exist in Colorado than any other state. The incredible number of tantalizing folktales, and lengends that have come out of that state certainly support that contention.

W.C. Jameson presents twenty-seven intriguing, mysterious and compelling stories of lost gold and silver mines, hidden strongboxes, missing army payrolls and Spanish loot. In many ways the tales themselves are like the treasure they describe. Culturally, they represent a portion of the wealth of the people of Colorado - lore and legends handed down through the generations. They are an important part of the cultural fabric of that state.







Buried Treasures of the Great Plains: Legends of Lost Immigrant Caches, Abandoned Payroll Coins, and Stagecoach Robbery Loot-From North Dakota to Texas $11.95



Thorough research is evident as one progresses through this adventure-filled text. A lengthy introduction describes the origin, geography, and people of the area. The stories are then divided by state: Kansas, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, and Texas. Three to seven legends per chapter tell how treasures and fortunes came to be buried on the Great Plains. Of those mentioned, the Dalton Gang is probably the most widely known. Each chapter begins with a map showing the location of each tale, which varies from 6 to 10 pages in length. This title concludes with an extensive glossary and a long list of references. A collection that will be enjoyed by a wide audience, including reluctant readers.







Buried Treasures of the Ozarks: Legends of Lost Gold, Hidden Silver, and Forgotten Cashes $11.95



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.

W.C. Jameson does a wonderful job of relating the tales of times gone by and the treasures left behind. He never states as fact that which he does not know as fact. A great read! I would recommend it to arm-chair treasure hunters and professional ones, alike.







Buried Treasures of Texas: Legends of Outlaw Loot, Pirate Hoards, Buried Mines, Ingots in Lakes, and Santa Anna's Pack-Train Gold $10.95



Jameson does a great job of making the legends of Texas' buried treasure come alive. His facts and details made me want to grab a shovel and get to work trying to find some of this stuff!! I would recommend this book to anyone interested in learning about Texas or treasure anywhere. Jameson's dry wit made the book enjoyable.
