Description
The twenty-four tales in this book are of the most famous lost treasures in America, from a two-foot statue reportedly made entirely of silver (the "Madonna") and a cache of gold, silver, and jewelry that was rumored to also contain the first Bible in America to seventeen tons of gold--its value equal to the treasury of a mid-sized nation--buried somewhere in northwestern New Mexico. What makes these tales even more compelling is that none of these known-to-be-lost treasures have been discovered, although modern detecting technology has made them eminently discoverable.
