This book is one half "english" and one half "spanish" Mexico's immense unfounded treasures begin with the hidden Mayan and Aztec treasures. Next came the 1810 to 1821 revolutionary period wherein father Miguel Hidalgo gathered the Indians, peons, the enslaved and the Mexicans to revolt against Spain's rule, an eleven year period where the Mexicans won their independence from Spain. During these eleven years of fighting, Spain was forced to recall its soldiers from the northerly areas where they had protected many hundreds of mines, communities and missions. Thousands of treasures, both large and small, as well as mines, were hidden by miners, mine owners, families, soldiers and missions with the intention of returning one day to recover what they had hidden - but they never returned because Spain lost and Mexico became independent. Then between 1821 and 1847 Mexico had many, many revolutions and over 20 different presidents and governments. In 1848 Mexico lost its northernmost lands to the united states. There was just too much constant turmoil to allow an organized and concentrated effort to find these lost . Treasures and hidden mines. By far the majority are still today exactly where they were hidden and/or buried many years ago-UNFOUND.
Keep in mind that Spain as well as Mexico either controlled or claimed ownership of much of the united states years ago. Many ranches in the U.S. as well as Mexico still have treasures hidden in corrals, water wells,barbeques, under old fireplaces, etc. , As shown, and used even today-known as "private banks". Even pirates had special carved boulders that could be seen from the ocean, they are called "shelter rocks". The spanish began using these inland to hide/cover treasures as well as mine shafts. In 1938 an estimated 11 million dollars of treasure was unearthed under one of these "shelter rocks"at a coastal point just north of Miami. Another in 1993 was rolled over in Arizona to expose a 12 foot shaft leading to a room with many gold bars.
