Buried Treasures of the Rocky Mountain West

Buried Treasures of the Rocky Mountain West

 

These 32 tales from “the Backbone of America” include “The Gold Behind the Waterfall” (Arizona), “The Treasure of Deadman Cave” (Colorado), “Lava Cave Cache” (Idaho), “Henry Plummer's Lost Gold” (Montana), “The Curse of the Lost Sheepherder's Mine” (Nevada), “Lost Train Robbery Loot in Cibola County” (New Mexico), “Eighty Ingots in Spanish Gold” (Utah), and “Lost Ledge of Gold” (Wyoming). As Jameson points out in his introduction, the Rocky Mountains still have many remote areas that even today can only be reached on horseback or on foot. Centuries ago Native American Indians, Spaniards, explorers, prospectors, miners, the occasional wandering cowboy and even outlaws fleeing the law roamed these rugged mountains. Today this land remains laced with hidden treasures just waiting to be found.
