KIRKUS REVIEW

In line with the Dobie books, Coronado's Children, Apache Gold and Yaqui Silver, are these tales of lost mines, treasures, caches in deserts, mountains and missions, variations on the theme of the Lost Pegleg Mine. From legends, yarns, personal experiences of gold hunters, and newspaper accounts, tales of Indian and Spanish hoards, dangerous searches, ghosts and hauntings are spun -- and the ""burro"" prospector, rather than the modern day seeker, honored. Good material of Western wealth hunters.
