9780874834062: Buried Treasures of California

A wealth of fascinating information that is part legend and part history. -Kliatt Review


After reading these 30 revived tales of wealth and splendor, you will be tempted to throw some supplies into a backpack like the '49-ers of old and head west. Although stories of lost gold and silver veins are abundant (“Mysterious Blue Ledge of Gold,” “The Curse of the Mormon Silver Ledge”), they in no way represent all of the wealth hidden in California's geography and folklore.

Does Death Valley hold more than just sand and arid desert; is it also the “Canyon of Lost Gold” and site of the “Golden Gravels of Goler Wash”? Is the long California coastline covering secrets (“Gold in the Sand”) and hidden riches (“Lost North Beach Million,” “Five Hundred Pound Silver Ingot”)?Are the sprawling metropolises now covering the priceless artifacts of an emperor (“The Hollywood Bowl Treasure”)?

Outlaws, prospectors, Indians, loners and Mexicans throw themselves into all the adventure and intrigue. California's mountains, deserts, beaches, and cities―as well as sunken treasure―are all encompassed in this collection. This treasure hunt visits cultures such as the Choctaw and Seminole Indians to celebrate adventure and teach readers about courage, responsibility and resourcefulness.

About the Author:

W.C. Jameson Bio:

W.C. Jameson is the award-winning and best-selling author of more than seventy books and over 1,500 articles and essays. In addition, he is an accomplished songwriter and performer, having recorded five albums of his original music and acted in five films. He has written the soundtracks for four films, and wrote and performed in the musical, “Whatever Happened to the Outlaw, Jesse James?”


Jameson is the best-selling treasure author in the world. Perhaps he is known best, as the creator of the popular Buried Treasures of America series for August House. His success and fame as a professional treasure hunter has led to appearances on television's “Unsolved Mysteries,” the Travel Channel, the Discovery Channel, Nightline, and National Public Radio. He also consulted with the production team for the highly successful feature film, “National Treasure,” starring Nicholas Cage. One of Jameson's most popular books is Billy the Kid: Beyond the Grave, a regional bestseller. This controversial book presents stunning evidence that the famous outlaw, Billy the Kid, was not killed by Sheriff Pat Garrett in 1881 but went on to live an adventurous and productive life for the next sixty-nine years.


Jameson has won numerous awards for his writing from a number of professional associations. A nationally recognized and honored author, he has served as a judge for several prestigious literary competitions. When not on an expedition or writing a book, Jameson tours the country performing his music at folk festivals, colleges and universities, concert halls, and roadhouses.

Review:

Jameson, a professional treasure hunter, teacher, and editor, continues his "Buried Treasure" series, which now numbers over a dozen titles. Jameson is a good storyteller and has done extensive research in tracking down all these tales. ... These could be popular with younger readers and may even be highly requested in areas specific to the various titles.--John Kenny "Library Journal "
