Overview

This book is an account of the author's research into five famous lost or hidden treasures. However, the book features the one treasure story among them that has not proved to be a myth, the Forrest Fenn hidden treasure story.

In 2010, a retired millionaire art dealer named Forrest Fenn published his memoir, The Thrill of the Chase, which included a twenty-four line poem that he claimed contained nine clues, which if diciphered and followed exactly, would lead to his hidden treasure, a bronze chest filled with gold coins, nuggets, and gems, said to be worth about $3 million. Fenn estimates that as many as 30,000 people have actively searched for his treasure, without success. This might be understandable since Fenn tells us the treasure is hidden somewhere in the vastness of the Rocky Mountains.

On March 14, 2017, the author submitted a revised "Forrest Fenn" section of this book. Based on his further research and study, he identified a specific GENERAL location of Fenn's treasure, in northern New Mexico, which he believed fit the most inportant clues provided in Fenn's poem. But while the author believed he had identified the general location of Fenn's treasure, he fully recogniized that it would probably take an on-site "exploration" of this area to finally locate the treasure. In a June 20, 2017 addendum to his section on Fenn's treasure, the author tells of a trip he made May 1, 2017 to northern New Mexico to "explore" the area where he thought the treasure might be hidden, and he has added photos of the trail and the canyon that runs along side the trail. In the addendum he also discusses further ideas toward solving Fenn's clues.

Additionally, this book includes the author's research results on four other famous treasures stories--the Steamboat Gila robbery-Crescent Springs treasure story, of southern Nevada; the story of the Denver Mint missing dimes, supposedly lost in Colorado's Black Canyon; the story of the missing gold shipment up on the Little Big Horn River at the exact same time as "Custer's Last Stand;" and the story of the missing treasure of Maximilian, the last emperor of Mexico, reportedly buried in Texas at a place called Castle Gap.These stories have been extensively researched by the author and any "treasure hunter," active or "arm chair" should enjoy following his research efforts.

Then, to prove that not all treasure stories are myths, he tells of the lost treasures of Bernarr Macfadden, a millionaire publisher who died in 1955. Macfadden had a pathological distrust of banks and was known to bury his money in metal ammunition boxes on or about his many properties. One such box was dug up by a bulldozer a number of years back, containing $200,000, but nobody knows how many of those boxes are still waiting for a persistent metal detectorist, who will do the necessary research to find them.

So this book is for "treasure hunters," active or armchair, and especially for those who plan or even dream of heading out into the Rockies in search of that elusive gold-laden chest that Forrest Fenn so generously gives title to the finder.
