KIRKUS REVIEW

The 10th collaborative collection by the Western Writers of America combines history which ""grows into legend"" so that ""legends proliferate"". From Noel Loomis' fascinating reconstruction of The Seven Cities of Gold sought by the conquistadores, there are many challenges and lures- a lost mine, lost bullion, lost loot, phantom lodes- even a sack of flour that sold for $275,000. There are tales of death and men who were larger than life, of hauntings; of Indian and Mexican trails, customs, cures, beliefs; and certainly the best names in this field have managed once again to provide a big bonanza.
