W.C. Jameson, an expert on treasure hunting, now turns his attention to Wyoming’s lost fortunes. With his gift for storytelling, he relates intriguing legends and historical accounts of lost gold, buried payrolls, and hidden strongboxes.
Jameson takes us on an adventure to the four corners of Wyoming to investigate the Snake River Pothold Gold, the Hallelujah Gulch Robbery Loot, the Lost Treasure of Big Nose George, the Lost Cabin Gold Mine, and twelve other action-packed tales.
Buried treasures and mines bearing vast riches exist in Wyoming. These stories will pique the reader’s imagination. Some are legends whispered from person to person over the decades and others have been recorded in court records and history books.
As Jameson writes, “Not all treasure hunters will be successful, but those who come away from the experience are richer by far than when they arrived.”
Jameson has written more than 60 books on treasure hunting and served as an advisor to Walt Disney Productions on the National Treasure movies starring Nicholas Cage. An amateur treasure hunter in Texas testified in court that he had found a multi-million dollar lost treasure by using only a copy of one of Jameson's books and Google Earth for directions.
