An adventure story made up of many true stories. In it will be found dozens of tales of buried treasure, lost gold mines, hidden Inca jewels, pirate gold. Apparently authentic --historical accounts of actual treasure hunts. Illustrated with photographs which tempt one to set out for India, Egypt or elsewhere. This is not wholly a glamorous book, however, since where such passions are involved, there, too, are hardship, tragedy and sudden death. Sell to the eternal boy treasure hunter in every man.
