That the stories in this book have an authentic background is proven in history. The fact that the old mines and treasures referred to have not been re-located has not prevented the author from giving important details as to their value and general location. Many of the details have been taken from original Spanish documents and old church records, from the words of old Indians whose ancestors had worked in the mines and of old -timers who themselves had lost once-in-a-lifetime strike or knew prospectors who had. The author has spent many years in the desert mountains and on the boundless plains of Old Mexico and the American Southwest. His life has been cast along with these old stories, in the days when the old-timers lived and searched for gold. He has spent many pleasant hours around campfires listening to the tales and traditions of by-gone days. Everyone dreams of finding buried riches. Many volumes of fiction have been written about the buried booty of the pirates who once sailed the seas. But this book is about treasure which is known to have existed, and which the old-timers insist will still be found. Here are the clues the writer has gathered in his years in the Desert Southwest. This is not a book of fiction. But those who hunt for these long lost fortunes should be cautious. They should heed the warning of whitened skulls, lost trails and empty canteens. And to each mine seeker - Good Luck!
