9780981591407: The Klamath Treasure: The Adventure Of Euclid Plutarch Hammarsen

"The Klamath Treasure a treasure of a book." -- Bill Duncan, The News-Review "Barnes is a masterful writer and her characters spring to life." -- Connie J. Davis, Two Rivers Tribune For over 150 years folks have traveled the Klamath River Canyon in search of the elusive and legendary gold it holds. In a land filled with mystery and magic, mountain lions and rattlesnakes, ancient fish and hidden caves - only a few have been lucky enough to find a part of the real Klamath Treasure. When Euclid began his own search, the boy had no idea that his adventure would include a hidden jade temple, a horrible accident that would change his father's life forever, and a ghostly revelation delivered to him as he perched in a cave high above the valley floor. His journey to the Treasure is an exciting tale of life on the wild and beautiful Klamath River at the turn of the century.

About the Author:

About the Author: Trisha Barnes (formerly Johnson) was raised in Happy Camp, California, and while working for the Forest Service and attending College of The Siskiyous she spent time in the communities of Fort Jones, Sawyer's Bar, Yreka, Arcata, and Weed. After working for Croman Corporation as a landing chaser and loader trainee in Oregon and Idaho, she made her home in Springfield, Oregon where she received a Bachelor of Management degree from Northwest Christian College. She is the mother of two sons and a student advocate involved in school board oversight and public fiscal responsibility. About the book: The Klamath River Canyon has been featured as a backdrop for the new book, "The Klamath Treasure," by regional author Trisha Barnes. Formerly a resident of Happy Camp, California, the author wound her own experiences of mining, hunting, and time spent fishing the rivers and creeks into the historical fiction story of Euclid Plutarch Hammarsen and his journey to find the true Treasure of the Klamath. Asked why she decided to set her first book in the sometimes isolated Happy Camp area, Barnes said, "I started out to write this story for my sons, who are eleven and twelve years old. I wanted them to know what it was like to grow up in a wild, rugged, and beautiful land." She added, "There's no other place I know of that holds the mystery and magic of that place, as well as the rich mining and logging history. I guess I'm a bit biased for the area, of course." The author refers to other local titles as inspiration for her project, namely "Dear Mad'm," by Stella Patterson, "In The Land of Grasshopper Song," by Mary Ellicott Arnold and Mabel Reed, and even "Remedy Rhymes," by former Happy Camp Elementary School teacher LaVerne Collard. The Happy Camp area has long been sought by miners and treasure seekers for mineral riches. It has a storied background that included a large population of Chinese prospectors, mine owners from New York and San Francisco, and an early camp killing that landed the Happy Camp area with the name Murderer's Bar for several years. Barnes also highlights some of the problems associated with the environmental movement and the timber industry decline in Siskiyou County within the frame of the adventure story.
