The authors of Lost Legends of the West now explore legendary treasures in a collection filled with eccentric characters, wild adventure -- and real clues. Sure to captivate both armchair explorers and fans of Americana, these little-known stories include the legend of a Spanish galleon carrying a fortune in gold shipwrecked off a remote Oregon beach...a metal box containing $750,000 worth of diamonds buried in a bitter husband's backyard...a 500-pound silver ingot lost in the Mojave Desert...and many more. Each tale is based on at least a kernel of truth and exemplifies the mystery, danger, and excitement that keeps the Old West alive in the imaginations of people everywhere.
