Now, in these three new books, Jameson reveals the secrets of lost wealth from New England, down to the Atlantic Coast, and across the Great Plains.
Stories in these collections range from the time of colonization ("Bloody Tew's Lost Gold" and "Joseph Braddish's Secret Cache") and the Revolutionary War ("The Benedict Arnold Treasure" and "Marie Antoinette's Diamond Necklace") to the days of marauding pirates on the high seas ("Blackbeard's Isles of Shoals Treasure" and "The Lady Pirate's Marsh Mystery") to Civil War-era riches ("A Rebel Soldier's Treasure Tale" and "The Lost Union Army Treasure") and hidden outlaw stashes on the Great Plains ("The Dalton Gang Lott" and "Bill Doolin's Outlaw Gold").
Armchair adventurers of all ages will devour these terrific tales of forgotten war loots, sunken treasures, outlaw hordes, jinxed ships, and cursed money. They'll ride the waves with swindling swashbucklers, saddle up with the Texas Rangers, and dig for lost immigrant catches among the dangers of the Wild West.
Each volume contains a glossary of geological and geographical terms.
