  • Patti Kerr

    Very enjoyableI enjoyed reading this book. I love tales of lost treasures. How I wish I could find one of these treasurers.


  • Sky Woodman

    Fun read, personally found it not as enthralling as Jameson’s biography Treasure Hunter, but well researched and contains a ton of historical information. Thanks again W.C.

    The Silver Madonna and Other Tales of America's Greatest Lost TreasuresFrom The twenty-four tales in this book are of the most famous lost treasures in America, from a two-foot statue reportedly made entirely of silver (the Madonna ) and a cache of gold, silver, and jewelry that was rumored to also contain the first Bible in America to seventeen tons of gold its value equal to the treasury of a mid-sized nation buried somewhere in northwestern New Mexico. What makes these tales even more compell [...]

    In this book you will find 24 tales of lost treasure in the United States, most of them having to do with buried gold. The author explores both the history and legends surrounding each treasure and each chapter is an easy but interesting read. I found my own wanderlust kindled as I made my way through this book, I had no idea that there is supposedly so much gold still lying around, waiting to be discovered.Overall, the author does a good job of setting each story in its historical context and b [...]

    I thought this was going to be a history book along the lines of Howard Blum's THE FLOOR OF HEAVEN. While there IS some interesting history sprinkled here and there, it is mostly a sort of treasure hunter's wet dream, full of sentences like: 'There exists a compelling tale of dozens of gold ingots believed to be worth millions of dollars buried under a few feet of sand' Well, okay--what are you supposed to do with that 'information'? If you are like the people in this book, you'll spend years lo [...]

    I saw this book reviewed in my latest edition of "Wild West" magazine and thought I would give it a shot. While it was an entertaining and, in some instances, educational read; I thought it was somewhat lacking in detail. Personally, I would have liked to have seen some photographs and/or maps to provide some degree of reality to the 24 astonishing tales of lost treasures. I suppose too much detail in a book such as this may not be desirable as it may lead to wanton destruction of some of the lo [...]

    Interesting stories, but he tries to pass it off as a scholarly book without providing any citations for source materials, which I found off-putting. If you just want to read short tales of buried treasure, it's a good "fun" book, but definitely not a scholarly work and not enough details for actual treasure hunters to work from.


  • K. Bannerman

    Greatly enjoyed these tales of treasure hunters… perfect bedtime reading.


  • Lori

    Most of the stories read the same.
