LOST TREASURES OF THE WEST

What with the economic recession and soaring unemployment, following the trail of Lost Treasures of the West probably makes as much sense as playing the horses or the lottery. Williams and Pepper have done a round-up of the legends, rumors and partly authenticated tales of sunken, buried or otherwise hidden treasures. A Spanish galleon shipwrecked along the coast of Oregon, the cache of an Indian princess, the gold mine entrusted to Brigham Young by the Ute Indians, the booty of a 19th-century trader, Levi MacGruder, robbed and slain by four bad men who subsequently hid the loot under a boulder which was never found -- all are presumed out there. And, finders keepers. For those who have graduated from Boys' Life to True.
