9781926613994: The Lost Lemon Mine: An Unsolved Mystery of the Old West (Amazing Stories) (Amazing Stories (Heritage House))

The legend of the Lost Lemon Mine is one of the most enduring unsolved mysteries of the Canadian West. In 1870, so the story goes, two prospectors named Lemon and Blackjack found gold in the rugged mountains of southwestern Alberta or southeastern British Columbia. Shortly after, Blackjack died at Lemons hand. The distraught Lemon left the scene of the murder and never recovered his senses--or his gold. Despite exhaustive searches by treasure seekers and historians, the mine has never been located.

In The Lost Lemon Mine, Ron Stewart revisits this intriguing story and attempts to answer the tantalizing questions posed by the often conflicting evidence. Who was Lemon? Where was the mine? Did Lemon and Blackjack steal the gold and invent a fictitious mine to cover their tracks? Stewart has meticulously researched the many versions of the story in order to separate folklore from fact, challenging readers to reach their own conclusions.
