Great American Treasure Hunting Stories
edited by Lamar Underwood
Two of humankind’s most persistent quests—“get rich quick” and “something for nothing”—provide the power driving these tales of treasure seekers in action. Renowned storytellers, like Jack London and Mark Twain, join real-life adventurers risking their lives for riches they think are worth the dangers.
Buried treasure, creeks glittering with gold nuggets, sunken galleons filled with Spanish doubloons—the mother lodes are as varied as the men pursuing them. Some of the seekers will be rewarded; others face tragedy in remote places, lost among the jungles, mountains, and oceans. In both fiction and nonfiction, these stories make treasure hunting a real-life experience, in gripping prose that makes the reader of these stories part of the hunt itself.
