KIRKUS REVIEW

While this deals with a subject of endless interest to young and old, the presentation of the material seems to savor of the exclamatory school of journalism, and the illustrations, by Robert Glaubke, seems old-fashioned and coarse (or is this the fault of thickening-up in reproduction?) But the stuff is there:-lost mines, outlaws, train robberies, buried treasure trove of pirates and highwaymen, holdups and high- graders. The Spaniards play their part. Famous pirates have their due. Treasure ships still conceal riches. And even today, treasure hunters endlessly search, and occasionally find, mystery hordes of the past. A known treasure of 20 million Mexican dollars is concealed somewhere in New Mexico. At the close there is a state by state guide to hidden treasure. Double column layout. No index.
